My typical week:
Thursday morning- bus 2 hours from home into the city- head straight for brother’s house
Saturday afternoon- leave brother’s house, bus to boyfriend’s house
Monday afternoon- bus back home
Not exactly ideal for any type of gardening, but I’m having tons of fun sprouting, so this week as soon as I got into town I hit the HFS to grab lots of seeds to experiment with. I set up my “mobile sprout center” in my brothers garage- rinsed all sprouts well, started sunflower seeds, buckwheat, alfalfa, wheat berries, mustard seed, flax, quinoa, lentils and a bit of popcorn (just to see) soaking. Throughout the day I transferred the seeds for sprouting. Having actual jars would make life far too easy, so I spread the seeds onto newspaper on baking sheets.
Of course, being wonderfully quick/easy, the quinoa was ready to go into tupperware when I left my brother’s this morning. The rest though, had to be transferred into plastic bags in preparation for the bus trip over to BF’s house, where they all were once again rinsed and placed onto newspaper lined baking sheets- and then the wonderful challenge of finding a clean place to keep them in a house inhabited by five guys…
My point- if I can sprout, anyone can. I’ve been transitioning to raw for about a month now and love sprouts as part of the diet. Hopefully I’ll be able to establish a small sprout jar collection in each of my 3 “homes” as well as claim a space of my own for them to grow, but for now I’m making whatever use of whatever is available.
Any experienced sprouters out there, if you can think of any tips to make sprouting-on-the-go easier, I’d love to hear!!!
