Hello and Welcome! I decided to start this blog for everyone out there who has an interest, or WANTS to be interested, in living a life that is a little more sustainable. I am still learning, and invite you to follow this blog to learn along with me. I will share what I have learned as we go, and hopefully you will pitch in and share what YOU are doing to live a little more off of what you can grow and DO from home. PLEASE BELIEVE ME when I say, if I can learn how to do this on a very small backyard plot in a city, then ANYONE can do this!!

Sprouting GIVEAWAY!

I recently wrote about sprouting as a way to quench your gardening itch during the winter months.  I am excited to announce that Handy Pantry (by Living Whole Foods, Inc)  has very generously donated several items just for YOU to enjoy!  I was hesitant to try sprouting having heard others talk about having to "rinse them constantly" and that it "was a pain."  The winter garden itch won over, however, and I found the wonderful sprouting kit from Handy Pantry at my local garden center.  It was SO EASY to do the sprouting using these trays that I now keep them continuously in service!  The seeds can be rinsed 3 times a day but 2 quick rinses per day work just fine as well (this is what I do and they always turn out fantastic).  In a lot of circles, sprouts are considered super foods that are also touted as "fountains of youth."  The reason they say this is that they are powerhouses packed with nutrients, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and more!  For example, broccoli sprouts have been found to have 50 times the antioxidant property (sulfurophane) of mature broccoli!  Not to mention that all of these sprouts tasted MUCH better than store bought.  All of their seeds are certified Organic AND non-GMO.  Well, as we have come to know around here-everything tastes better when it is Fresh From Home! 

1 GRAND PRIZE WINNER: The SPROUT GARDEN-Complete Starter Kit ($30 value): Makes up to 4 lbs of sprouts in 3 days!  Includes 2 oz. packet of Organic, Non GMO Alfalfa Sprouting Seeds
3 Tray Stackable Sprout Garden
