Gardening All Year with Sprouts

Posted by admin VIP     1 Comment(s)    Add a Comment  comment-icon.png

There’s nothing I like better on a sandwich or salad than sprouts.  Besides being so flavorful and crunchy, sprouts are super nutritious.  Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, sprouting is the year round gardening choice for me as they can be grown right on my counter, no matter the season.

Whether using alfalfa, broccoli, clover or a ton of other seed choices, sprouting allows you to have fresh greens everyday if you stagger your seed starting.  You can also do larger quantities and refrigerate your sprouts for up to one week.

 

How I sprout:

(Shown: Alfalfa)

I use a small mason jar, screen and lid for my sprouting vessel.  I added two teaspoons of seed to the jar and then added water to completely cover the  seeds.  Let soak overnight or 8-12 hours.

Soaking Sprouts

 

After the seeds have soaked, rinse them with fresh water and drain.  Rinse and drain your seeds twice every day until ready and store in a dark area without direct sun light.  By the end of the first day, you’ll notice they are beginning to sprout!

Day 1

 

Remember!  Rinse and soak twice a day! You’ll notice the leaves are beginning to appear.

Day 2

 

By the third day of rinsing and draining, your leaves are getting bigger and greener.  Getting there!  Go ahead and allow them to get some indirect light to green up those sprouts even further.

Day 3

 

Ready!  Continue to rinse and drain your sprouts, even if refrigerated.  This keeps them crisper longer.

Day 4

 

Enjoy!
