Growing Sprouts – Spring is in the air!

The feel of spring is finally here and we did some gardening and sprouting this past week. There is nothing more rewarding than growing sprouts as a beginner to gardening.

Below are some pictures of what we sprouted.

Day 5 After Sprouting: Ready to eat food!

(BTW: Sprouts are the cheapest nutritious food. A bag of seeds that will last you a few weeks costs only about $5 if you grow your own. To buy a box of sprouts at the store that you can use once or twice will cost you $5 – $6). The sprouts below are growing in my Easy Sprouter which mists them at set times of the day

We had some fungus show up in our sprouts. The solution: Add an infusion of horsetail tea into the water. In a couple of days, the fungus was gone!

Day 3: Alfalfa Sprouts growing in our jar

What do you do with sprouts?? Dress up your food!

We added sprouts to our almond and cashew cakes, topped with Caramelised onions, Sunflower seed sprouts, avocados, in nori rolls, or big salads!  Sprouts are Sexy!  If you don’t have the Easy Sprouter (most of don’t!!) you can easily sprout in a mason jar or in a cloth or hemp bag. What you do is: soak your seeds overnight, drain the water the next day and let the jar (which has a mesh lid for ventilation for sprouting) hang out. If you are sprouting in a bag, its the same, let the bag and sprouts soak overnight or a few hours, then let it hang, and your sprouts will grow. Hopefully this ignites an idea in your to start growing your own food. Sprouts are the easiest.

I wrote this post when we lived in an apartment with a balcony. I didn’t have a garden to grow food in. Check out my blog on 7 Simple Tips to Start Your Garden!

  1. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just can do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, that is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
