Всходы is a fun little word. The prefix вс- means upward. The root ход- means go. When you put them together into a word that is only used in the plural, it means sprouts, i.e. the tiny little beginnings of plants that have just come up out of the soil. Here's a sample sentence:
|Всходы выдерживают заморозки от минус 3 до минус 6 градусов. (source)
||The sprouts can stand freezing weather from minus three to minus six degrees.
Under the influence of books like “In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto” by Michael Pollan and “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life” by Barbara Kingsolver, I decided to do some container gardening on my patio. I went to the farmer's market and bought some Green Zebra tomatoes. I liked them so much that I squeezed out some seeds, fermented them and planted them:
|Вот помидорные всходы, которые в конце апреля появились у меня во дворе.
||Here are the tomato sprouts that appeared in my yard at the end of April.
