popcorn sprouts

Kind of miraculous, these….

Popcorn sprout

I make popcorn by tossing kernels in a bowl made for making popcorn in the microwave (no oil or butter — just kernels). Usually there are a few unpopped kernels left. Those get tossed into the compost bin.


This morning when I emptied my kitchen compost bucket into the big outside compost bin, I noticed a dozen or so sprouts. It took me a moment to realize they were from the tossed popcorn kernels.

Sprouted popcorn, too

Amazing that even after several minutes in the microwave these guys still had so much life in them. A miracle, really.
