This morning I feel a bit remiss because as I peer out my kitchen window I find a fairly hefty amount of snow fell overnight. The garden that was showings signs of early spring just yesterday is now covered with a thick layer of snow and the earth is hardened once again by the cold temperatures. Even though we have had a very mild winter, the need to delve into the soil and plant something is seeping into my veins.
I often find myself feeling this way on these cold February mornings and I think today I have come up with a temporary solution for my need to plant something, anything.
The girls and I grab a few Mason jars and go to work. We will sprout some seeds this morning! You can purchase sprouting seeds at just about any garden center and all it takes are those seeds, cheese cloth, a Mason jar and water.
Simply follow the directions on the back of the seed package and in about 4 days you will have lovely little sprouts to add to salads, stir fries or smoothies.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend filled with fun and family! Enjoy!

What a wonderful thing to do on this snowy Friday!! I love seeing those cute little hands doing everything!!
I just sprouted some peas indoors this week. They were for planting outside (I’m in Virginia), but they looked so yummy, I really wanted to snack on a few! (Are pea sprouts edible, do you know?)
Yes! I always use peas that are specifically labeled for sprouting when we eat them in “sprout form.”
