This is where square-foot gardening becomes square inch gardening. It is the micro garden!
Sprouts are a natural way to easily grow your food in all seasons of year. You probably have most of the equipment you need already in your kitchen. I use canning jars or other widemouth food jars saved from canned peaches or pears. I've also purchased food grade rubber bands which I use to attach a cut square of cheesecloth to the open mouth of the jar. Beyond this all you need is water and organically produced non-GMO seeds.
To begin my seeds sprouting adventure, I purchased a sampler pack from www.Wheatgrasskit.com. I have found that it is super easy to grow my own sprouts and have been enjoying sprouts this past week in sandwiches, salads and juiced with kale, cider and grapes.
My Great Green Juice
One cup unfiltered apple cider
Two handfulls chopped fresh kale
15 to 20 large red grapes
One cup clover sprouts
Eight ice cubes.
Add all ingredients to a Vitamix or comparable food processor and blend until liquified.
