I love the sprout mix I get for the house its a mix of Broccoli, Clover, Radish and Alfalfa certified Organic Blend that I buy, I have saved home grown radish seed, Home grown and saved Bloody Dock Seeds and Home grown and saved Pigweed seeds and TONS of home grown and saved mustard seeds. Its nice to have a different choices but my home grown do tend to do better as micro greens then sprouts.
I like my sprouts smaller then they say to grow them, I have been known to eat them straight out of the dish with just a fresh water rinse on them while they are still so small and tiny but I also have times when they get ahead of themselves and they create the nice thick mat of roots. I find they work better to be added to things once they are chopped up.
Its nice to have a mix of kinds and at different stages, I currently have eight trays but I am thinking about increasing it to 12 trays going now that my mom is in the house? Do you sprout, if so how many trays do you run for how many people in your household? Do you buy your sprouting seeds? or do you grow, harvest and save your sprouting seeds? if so what is your favorite kind to do so on? or are you like me.. do you do both.. buy some and grow and save some?
If you do not sprout, what is your favorite way to get your winter greens? Do you grow mircogreens under lights? Are you one of those lucky readers that lives in a area that you can grow and harvest mustard greens year round or do you live a colder area but have the bigger set ups with the double layers and you winter grow your cold hardy greens and harvest all winter long?
