Can You Grow an Everything Bagel?
I’ve always wondered if the seeds you find on an everything bagel were still viable. So I decided to find out.
Heather got me the bagel at Safeway. No, Safeway isn’t known for its bagels, but that’s not the point of this experiment. I scraped all of the toppings into a pot of soil, sprinkled some soil on top, watered it, and set it on a windowsill. Amongst the toppings, I saw what I thought was sunflower, rye, poppy, and sesame seeds.
Will they grow? I’ll let you know.
Update: I’ve tried this experiment twice now and the only thing I grew was mold. I’m ready to call this one.
Verdict: Nope, the seeds on a bagel can’t be grown.
