Many people who grow broccoli sprouts typically grow a variety of other sprouts as well. Having different varieties to choose from means you won’t get bored of the same flavor all the time. You can even combine broccoli, radish, clover and alfalfa to make a sprout salad mix.
More Sprouts Does Not Equal More Work
Once you learn how to grow them and develop an efficient growing system, you can double, triple or quadruple your plant production without really spending any more time or effort doing it.
It’s an easy way ensure that your family always has fresh, organic and nutritious greens available for salads, sandwiches, smoothies and other meals.
Saving Money with a Wheatgrass Grower…
Speaking of nutritious, you’ve probably heard of growing your own wheatgrass. Instead of going to your local Jamba Juice and paying around $5 for a shot of this superfood drink, you can grow your own supply at home, get a juicer (either a stainless steel hand crank model or a motorized juicer that can do other stuff too, like make nut butter, grind coffee and spices, whip milk, make baby food and more ) and have as much as you want for a lot less money.
The Problem… & Solution:
One big hassle, however, is that most wheatgrass growers require soil, which can be messy and attract bugs. That’s why I like the Tribest SM-350 Sproutman Wheatgrass Grower. You can grow your wheatgrass without using soil in convenient growing trays. It’s easy clean-up between growing sessions and less complicated.
Only 10 Days.
It doesn’t take long either. Similar to broccoli sprouts which can basically be harvested and eaten within 5 days, wheatgrass can take about 10 days.
The kit includes 3 growing trays with germinating lids, covers, shelf baskets and organic wheatgrass seed (Bonus!). If you want to increase production, though, the system can be expanded to 10 stacking trays, so you don’t have to have your sprout farms taking over your entire kitchen.
Another cool feature about the Sproutman is that you don’t need special lighting or a warming pad. The system is designed to work with the temperature and light in your home without you having to go out and buy special equipment that just add sup to more money and a complicated set-up.
