Microgreens

Winter doesn’t mean you can’t eat fresh greens. There are many that grow well indoors and many different ways of growing them.

Something easy and nutritious are sprouts. I bought a simple, inexpensive sprout grower. You can get seeds on-line and in many grocery stores, nurseries, and big box hardware stores. I like buying a seed mix so I get a nice variety.

Sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrition and so easy to grow. There are all kinds of seed sprouting kits out there. The one I have that I really like is 3 levels so you can have one that is fully sprouted that you are using with 2 in various stages of growth so you always have a ready supply of sprouts.

With a simple sprout grower, you can have nutritious sprouts of many different veggies, beans, and/or grasses in 3-5 days. All you do is put a teaspoon of seeds in the grower and water it twice daily.

Sprouts are great on salads, in eggs, or just as a quick snack.
