Grow Your Own Sprouts
Benefits Of, Clean, Growing Sprouts, Beans, Anti Age, Mustard Seeds, Glasses Jars, Sprouts Seeds, Lentils
Sprouting seeds in glass jars Sprouting with this simple system involves soaking your chosen seeds overnight and covering the jar with a mesh screen and rubber band. In the morning drain the soak water and rinse the seeds twice daily, placing them on a rack to drain during the day. Harvest them within three to seven days. Some of the easiest sprouts to grow are alfalfa, fenugreek, radish, broccoli, onion, cabbage, mustard, garbanzo beans, mung beans, quinoa, lentils and wheat.
The Benefits of Sprouting Sprouts are super easy to grow and incredibly nutritious. Buying sprouts from shops can be up to ten times more expensive than growing your own. Sprouts are one of nature’s true living superfoods - they are enzyme-rich, high in amino acid (protein) content, bursting with minerals and trace minerals, and are packed with chlorophyll. Sprouts are also healing and therapeutic, cleansing and alkalizing, and filled with antiaging antioxidants. Because they are so high in minerals and enzymes, they facilitate digestion, detoxification, and weight loss. What’s more, they taste fantastic. There is a wide selection of different types of seeds that one can sprout, so the variety and flavors available are virtually endless. The Glass Jar Method There are many different sprouting kit options, ranging from stackable plastic rings to glass jars, sprouting bags, and automatic sprouters. My favorite is the glass jar method. Sprouting with this simple system involves soaking your chosen seeds overnight and covering the jar with a mesh screen and rubber band. In the morning drain the soak water and rinse the seeds twice daily, placing them on a rack to drain during the day. Harvest them within three to seven days. Some of the easiest sprouts to grow are alfalfa, fenugreek, radish, broccoli, mung beans, onion, cabbage, mustard seeds, chickpeas, quinoa, lentils, pea sprouts, and wheat seeds. For most sprouts, continue to sprout them until they have developed a long tail or their first leaves have begun to go green. In the case of chickpeas, quinoa, pea sprouts, mung beans, and lentils, they are ready to eat as soon as their tails begin to unfurl or emerge from the seed.
Try growing your own sprouts. All you need are some seeds, a large, clean jar and some netted fabric secured with a band. Soak seeds that have been thoroughly rinsed for the first 24 hours in clean cool water, draining and refreshing the water several times. Store in the dark. Then rinse twice a day with fresh clean water and set in sunlight. Your sprouts will be ready to eat in a week. lentils and chickpeas!

How to grow sprouted onions #vegetable #gardening
How to grow sprouted onions - 1) Buy some onions and let them sprout. 2) Cut into the onion, nearly to the center, trying to avoid the sprouting center portion. Carefully cut around the base, removing the rest of the 2nd half of the bulb, until you just have the center left. 3) Plant your sprouted onion centers in soil. 4) Water them and give them sun 5) Mature red onions are ready for harvesting when the green top withers, falls over and starts to turn brown in mid to late summer.

Guide to Growing Lettuces - There are two main types of lettuce, the cabbage and the cos, and a great many varieties of each differing in colour, crispness, size and season. Lettuces like a well-dug, rather rich, well-manured soil. They are frequently treated purely as a catch-crop, and good yields can be obtained from sowings made on the ridges of celery trenches or between rows of peas.
