As I mentioned before, my  bf & I invested in this newfangled automatic sprouter that is meant to make sprouting a lot easier. So, according to the directions, you set the timer, add the seeds to the trays, fill the reservoir with water, and then just plug she in! So…I did just that. It even drains right into the sink-no fuss!

there she is! fancy set-up in the laundry!

And here’s a shot of the seed “cartridges”…I set them up with some seeds I’ve had laying around for a while…who knows if they’re anymore good, but I’m trying… They’re Basil, Parsley, Oregano and Thyme…but not necessarily in that order…I think I also threw some Snapdragon seeds in there.

So far, unfortunately, nothing really appears to be sprouting, and it’s been about a week. One tray of seeds has some tiny shoots, but I think the seeds might have just been past their prime in the first place, so I’m gonna try again with some new seeds.

Something else to note is that instead of using just plain water, we’ve been using this stuff called “Ocean Grown Solution”. It’s a concentrated solution which supposedly contains like 90 minerals and stuff which used to be in soil back at like…the beginning of time! I’ve also been using it on my house plants, and the results are amazing! I wish I had taken some before/after pix, because there is a noticeable difference in the health and appearance of the plants, in just a short time! I highly recommend!!
