Sprouting Seeds for sustainable nutrition
                                Suggested by Debby Moore, nutritional aficionado.
Harvest is approximately 5 - 6 days in future, from soaking seeds. 
Growing Food in Canning Jars
Step 1:  Assemble a case of large mouth pint jars (for one person) large mouth quart jars for two people.  That way you can prepare twelve days of food at a time.  Use net, (ladies stocking) small enough mesh, seeds cannot escape, but water must drain off.  I use large mouth jar canning rings to secure net.  You can also use rubber bands to secure net top, but experience tells me rings work best.
Sprouting Seeds
          Step 1  Step 2: is choosing favors of seeds you enjoy.  About 2 tablespoons of seeds fit well  into large mouth of pint jar.  All in the same jar, I use a mix of seeds beets, broccoli, carrots, leeks, onions, radishes, peas, lettuce, wheat grass, sunflower, parsley, egg plant, spinach, red clover, alfalfa, french lentil, barley grass, buckwheat.  I also use some "sandwich herbs' which are spicy in flavor & have larger leaf as sprout.

Step 3:  Pour enough water onto seeds to soak for 4 to 6 hours.  Drain, and place on side at tilt to rest.  Every twelve hours you will rinse seeds with water, drain, and replace jars on tilt, side.  Some people use a bowl to hold jars at tilt.  I use a basket to hold jars at tilt when I travel.  (Always renders great nutritious food no matter where I am.)

Step 5:  Vegetable Juice is  one of the Vegetable juice, drained
          from sprouts
great benefits of rinsing the seeds.  My opinion it has as much flavor as the sprouts themselves.

I have found that if you grow a jar longer than 6 days, your roots grow too long, and start to become stringy.  You can stop seed growth, by refrigerating.

Best temperatures for proprogation is 70 to 90 degrees.  I am amazed at how easy it is to grow totally organic food to feed ones self, every day.
