Why You Should be Sprouting Sprouts


I have come to the realization that I really can’t grow vegetables.  Oh, I can grow them, the problem is that when they are in their peak production – August and September – I have gone back to school.

And once I am back at school, I am simply too tired and too busy to worry about veggies.  It’s all I can do to harvest my herbs.


But I like the idea of eating food that I have grown.  I especially like the idea of eating food that I have grown without dirt, bugs, or weeds.


Look what I grew!  For the complete how-to’s, here is my original sprouting post

    given that I have about zero inches of space, I can’t grow anything either. And I especially dont’ care for bugs or weeds. So sprouts? Plenty ideal.

    I really need to try this. My husband loves sprouts and I am always reluctant to buy them because we never use them up before they get icky.

    Good Morning, Pam,
    That’s exactly why we didn’t keep our garden! About the time I was supposed to be canning and freezing, I was putting up bulletin boards and writing lesson plans!

    My hubby likes sprouts on his salads…we will have to try this.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend. ~Natalie

    Can’t you just grow them on one of those chia pets? ha ha

    Very cool idea, I didn’t know you could grow them that way. Actually, I didn’t have any idea of how to grow them.
