Growing local

I've been playing around a little with growing sprouts. It's an easy thing to do and produces a quick source of food that is very good for you.

Sunflower, Buckwheat, Peas and Broccoli are our favourites although they're called 'micro-greens' these days.

Nice work Andy, I love sprouts.

I sprout barley, oats, sunflower (sometimes others, but not sorghum) for the chooks and goats. You get bang for buck out of the grain and it's great for their gut health (as with our's).

I actually got it from Farina. It works really well.

Hi Andy, that was really good to see.  I've never had much success with sprouts, mostly because I forget to water.  I think that bag idea is neat - where did you get it?

Mine are in a pad thai tonight!

Many ways to make sprouts/micro-greens! Currently I do them in potting mix, water once and forget until harvest.
