Garden In A Jar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you’re anxious for fresh veggies from either your garden or the farmer’s market, you could consider growing sprouts.  I found sprout seeds when I was cleaning out a kitchen cabinet that we’ve had forever.  I put a tablespoon of them in a pint jar, covered them with the green sprouting lid in the photo (although you could just as easily use a piece of pantyhose and a rubber band) then rinsed and drained them every time I went to our kitchen sink.  Just over a week later, we had crunchy sprouts for salads and sandwiches.

    My first sprouts were ready today and made a nice snack. I had a pea, chick pea, lentil mix I ate like popcorn on my way to the grocery. It is nice having something fresh as I wait to get the garden in.

    I used window screening and a canning ring. As it was my first try at sprouting, I found I had used too much broccoli seed in the other jar. I was able to transfer the peas to a bowl for eating and split the broccoli between the two jars to finish them. I didn’t realize the broccoli would swell twice what the peas did. That was before they got leafy.
