My Sprouting Journey: I Couldn't Resist! And I'm Glad I Didn't!
You can see that it comes with 3 Sprouting Packets and 3 Trays!
I have been pondering a bit of crafting again and starting with Vision Boards. Maybe on a Monthly Basis. This would be GREAT to include in this month's Vision Board. It's plain and simple but inspiration just to look at it.
I tend to go in spurts with sprouts! If you have been a blogging buddy of mine for a while you might already know this about me. Previous Posts on Sprouting: Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, and Here. Oh yeah and Here, Here, Here, and Here! HaHa!
I'm sprouting at work and not at home. This time of year I have found unexpected guests in years past and I don't want to encourage that this year.
I'm not sure why but my office at work I have come to be VERY fond of for many reasons. One is the windows and natural light. Not that you need these things for sprouting but I just thought I would mention it. Another being that I have had a lot of luck with various plants growing around my office space so I figured I would try it!
This is the Protein Powerhouse Sprout Mix that came with the kit. The Mix has Adzuki, Garbanzo, Pea, and Mung.
My goal is to have sprouts going throughout the week - all week long - and break on the weekend. Another goal is to snack on them throughout the day and include them in my lunches.
Next week I hope to have all of the trays sprouting at the same time. This week I only did the one tray.
I mentioned that I would be sprouting all week and taking a break on the weekends while I'm not at work...I have a plan for that, too! I'll take any leftover home for the weekend!
I think these are really reachable goals. I will post progress here for sure!
On the box of the kit, it said their website is HandyPantry.com but it forwards to another site now. It's now under the direction of True Leaf Market.
True Leaf Market website I have already fallen in LOVE with it!
I know I will learn a lot but I will probably be so intrigued with their other products that I will have to look into buying some more of them!
I have also been storing my other sprouting seeds in a cool, dry place for a while now so I will be busting those out soon! PLUS...the ban on selling sprouting seeds in the state of PA has been lifted! YAY! I still can't believe that they were banned for 2 or 3 years. They made it illegal to sell sprouting seeds in the state. Other seeds were still ok but not seeds that were specifically geared toward sprouting sprouts! Oye!
