No garden space,no time or just want to get some instant greens happening – try sprouting seeds. It’s simple. Follow these steps using a clear glass jar for a container –

1.Soak Your Seeds – Soak your seeds in warm water for about 24 hours, smaller seeds can be soaked for 6-12 hours.

2.Drain – The next day you will need to drain the jar. Use a cheesecloth or screen covering  to drain the water and keep all your seeds.

3.Place Jar Away From Light – Set jar  away from light in a warm place. Give proper airflow and drainage.  Jar should be place with a slight downward angle to drain

4.Rinse – Everyday you will need to rinse your seeds, drain them and put them back into the angled position. Rinsing your seeds 2-3 times a day is recommended for most types of seeds. By the 3-5 day your sprouts should be ready for the next step.

5.Put  in the sun – The final step to your sprouts is exposing them to sun for a few hours a day.

6.Harvest  – Usually harvest when you see green leaves starting to appear or the larger seeds like beans and nuts you just see a white shoot. This site has great info on when to harvest different seed types
