Growing things from seeds is such a gratifying process, especially when they germinate and grow quickly like sprouts. Pop them in the jar, water them every few days, watch them with a smile, sing to them and before you know it the little brown seeds have become a micro forest of green. They sit on my kitchen windowsill where I can observe their progress multiple times a day. It makes me happy to enable such verdant, vibrant growth.
