The sprouts have been planted! 

Update: (This update is entitled: Smell ya later’ - February 16th, 2012)

Something has gone drastically wrong.  The chia and flax are fine, but the amaranth (and the quinoa that’s planted with it) wreaks like a garbage strike.  Blarg.  I think I over packed the mason jar when I was sprouting the amaranth seeds and they must have gone bad…maybe started to mold from the moisture…I have no idea. They smelled off when I was planting them, but looked fine so I thought maybe that’s just what they smell like.  Today, I still didn’t see any mold but the stench was so awful that they had to go in the compost.  I could never eat anything that smells that bad.
