Organic Alfalfa Sprouts



I love to do sprouting especially in the cold grey winter days. Because you will gain more benefits than growing them in the warm days.


  Some of the benefits are:

  • You can reduce your grocery expenses. Usually the fresh vegetables price would be high; during the cold days.

  • Your house has no flies disturbance; no extra protection is needed in a cool environment.

  • Grow Sprouts indoors, you can make full use of the stabled temperature from your in-house heater.

  • You can have as much volume as you wish; don't need to risk yourself to the market in the extreme freezing and wet days.

  • The most important is you eat real fresh organic food with an affordable price.



This whole sprouting program takes about 7 days. It has the shortest growing time when compared to other varieties of vegetables growth. So you will get easily non-stop fresh vegetables supplies; if you sprout some new seeds everyday.





Grow Bean Sprouts for Salads



Alfalfa sprouts are best for eating raw, adding to the salads, sandwiches; or spring rolls.


If you are not eating them immediately, you can cover them with a food plastic bag with little pricked holes, and keep them in the refrigerator for a maximum of seven days for the freshness.


If you sprinkle one or two drops of fresh lemon juice over your sprouts; before consumption; then you will be eating the freshest salad in the world.


Before consumption, it is better to expose the sprouts under the mild sun for 10 minutes; in this way, the sprouts would received some vitamin D from the sunlight that our body needs.





Growing Green Bean Seeds to Mung Beans Sprouts



Sprouting dried bean seeds is the same as sprouting alfalfa seeds. The only difference is the size of the seeds; because the seeds are bigger, so it is easier to handle.


Easy Steps for First Day
First rinse; then soak; remove those floated seeds before you start sprouting; then drain; and cover.

Second Day to Harvest Day
Rinse; drain; and cover



If there are insects flying around in the summer, an indoor portable table top mini greenhouse is recommended for hygiene purpose.


Mung bean sprouts are commonly used in the Chinese cooking. It can be added into your Chinese lomein; raw salads; or Bbq bean bags.


If you are not comfortable to eat the roots; you may trim them off and put them into your compost pile; or homemade instant worms compost pot as organic plant foods for your soil.
