the location where my sprouts will inhabit, too. The spider plant and catgrass will welcome their new little buddies.

I have wanted to try growing edible food inside my home for quite some time. I’ve not any sort of outdoor space attached to my home, but have been craving my own little “kitchen garden“. A year ago, I had some basil in my bathroom, sandwiched in between my bath and a window (it’s a special sort of bathroom design, if I ever clean it and decorate perhaps I’ll find an excuse to post an image of it…) but my cat had other ideas. I’ve recently gotten into buying organic sprouts, so I think it was only natural that I eventually would decide to try growing them for myself!

I have my packet of seeds (purchased in a Healthfood store), my wide-mouth jar, some rubber bands, and running water in my home. The last thing I need is a sort of mesh that I can strain the seeds on. I’ll come up with something.

The seeds I bought this first time were alfalfa, but I might try some other varieties (peas, broccoli…) once I become an expert at this. Expect full documentation.

I’ve long heard about the beneficial aspects of sprouts, and now’s the time to really give it a go!
