For Christmas, my husband bought me one of these neat spouters that I had my eye on for awhile. There is something that I absolutely love about watching a tiny seed turn into a completely new thing and this is as close to instant gardening satisfaction that I think I will ever get!
I bought a variety pack of seeds to try them out from amazon. I sprouted 4 different types (one on each level) and I have to say - they are pretty rad. The broccoli & alfalfa sprouts were really successful, but the bean sprouts were not. The beans ended up not really sprouting and getting a bit of mold...it might have been the seeds or just that they were on the bottom tray.
It was like a fun little science experiment & it's nice to add a good healthy element to our kitchen. I guess there are only so many things two people can eat sprouts on, but I am up for the challenge.
