Soak seeds in cold water for half a day to a day, rinse well, then spread over the soil.  To prepare the soil, tamp it gently to flatten.  Spread the buckwheat seeds evenly (they should be quite thick) and tamp very gently to insure contact with the soil.  Mist thoroughly twice a day.  Keep covered with the blackout / humidity dome for 3 to 4 more days before exposing light.  Water once a day so the soil is damp but not soggy.  Rinse thoroughly and take care to remove all the shells before drying and serving.

Buckwheat greens are delicate and pale green with a tangy flavor.  They make an excellent snack!
