It has been crazy around here, the new garden beds are in, and are waiting a liner and some dirt.

My current project for the week, has been to try and grow some sprouts for a stir fry. Did you know that a pound of broccoli sprouts, has thirty times the anti oxidants and nutrients of an equal amount of broccoli heads. My first attempt was not so hot. I put too many seeds in the jar and they outgrew the container. It is important to have room for airflow. Tomorrow begins attempt number two.

I got this idea from " Fresh Food From Small Spaces" by R.J. Ruppenthal. It is a good book for creative ways to grow food in small areas. It is not a very good how-to book, but more of an idea book. It does however provide plenty of sources for the more reading on the ideas that strike your fancy.
