it's good someone found back this thread. I want to do more lacto-fermentation, since my Sauerkraut is going well ... It was much easier than I thought. Art (from the Art & Bri channel) shows it in this video: sauerkraut

Is it possible someone changes from introvert to something else (not exactly extravert)? In the past I was very shy and I always thought of the things I didn't do right. But during the years that's changed. The shyness is almost disappeared. I like being together with others now (not all others, it depends on their behaviour). I don't see myself as someone who 'did it wrong' and 'have to change' anymore. I know now all people make mistakes, do things wrong sometimes, and that isn't a problem.

I am getting ready to experiment to see if they will germinate.  If so I will plant some to see what I get.

What else can I do with these seeds?

Will they make nice tasting microgreens or sprouts?

I saved seeds from homegrown squash and watermelon. Will they make nice tasty microgreens or sprouts?

Never thought of squash-sprouts! I'll try now.
I saved seeds from squashes / pumpkins, much more than I need.

I mentioned one ... but I have more 'sins'...
I'm in love with the Caribbean island of CuraƧao. I FLY over there at least once every two years. That's 10 hours in a plane
Maybe one day it will be possible to start a living there ... but then probably I'll have to fly to the Netherlands once in a while ...
