Not a great deal to report, although one or two mustard seeds are beginning to burst.
It seems that the German farm that was accused of supplying poisonous beansprouts has so far delivered only harmless samples to be tested. The testers seem sure that they have found the source, so perhaps it is only a matter of time before they find it. On the other hand, either the new E.Coli bug isn’t as virulent as they had thought (i.e. it isn’t in every single beansprout in the producer’s greenhouses) or it simply isn’t there.
Magpie can almost guarantee that her beansprouts may not be making an appearance so far, but even if they remain beans, they will not contain E.Coli.
