Giveaway: Sprouting Seeds for Greens All Winter

It’s holiday time, which means thoughtful gifts and good cheer with loved ones. It also means, for many people, a winter without fresh greens in the garden. Thankfully, we can sprout seeds indoors for snipping into salads, soups and more all winter long.

Our regular readers may recall that we attempted to sprout seeds in a Mason jar not too long ago. It was a lot of work for a few dollars-worth of sprouts. If only it were easier…

Imagine our delight when the folks at Mercola.com approached us to do a giveaway for their Sprouting Seeds and Sprout Doctor Kit this week. Just the IDEA that sprouting could be less of a hassle made us want to partner up. Of course, we need to state publicly that, as with everything that Gardenerd promotes, we receive no monetary compensation for doing this and opinions expressed here are strictly our own. We’re just spreading the good news.

What You Get

Dr. Mercola's Sprout Doctor Sprouting Kit. Get 3 with our giveaway!

The giveaway package is generous, to say the least. It includes the following:

  • 4 bags of Broccoli Sprouts
  • 3 bags of Pea Shoots
  • 3 bags of Sunflower Shoots
  • 3 Sprouting Tray Tops (slotted for drainage)
  • 3 Sprouting Tray Bottoms (water reservoir)
  • 3 Sprout Doctor Soil Enhancement

The broccoli, pea and sunflower seeds come from High Mowing Organic Seeds, so you know they are good quality, organic seeds. The Soil Enhancement is made with organic compost, worm castings, organic kelp meal and biochar. All good things for your garden!

The two-level trays make it easy to grow sprouts so you don’t have to rinse them 3-4 times per day. You’re growing in a soil medium and the water is in the reservoir below. Just like growing seedlings you would raise for the garden, but you’ll be harvesting them in the sprout stage indoors this winter. Yummy!

You can add sprouts to smoothies, juice them along with other greens and fruits, or just throw them on top of your dinner. It couldn’t be easier with this setup…really, trust us on this one.

    Salads, sandwiches, and stir-fries are places I often use sprouts, but could easily expand to casserole and soups. Thanks for this opportunity.

  20. Athena Demos

    Im all about trying new things. Sprouts on salads and sandwiches are a given, but adding them to appetizers or other finger foods is fun too. Make them look like a little garden in every bite. They will be great in soups and stews or mixed with fresh eggs for a lovely scramble. And then I will just eat them for a snack like the jolly green giant.

  21. Marie

    I’ve been wanting to start growing sprouts for some time now. I would like to grow my own to feed my chickens, duck and also me and my hubby!

  22. PeteO

    Up here In Wisconsin the only fresh greens you really get are what you grow yourself inside. I have a little kale going and hope to start some spinach soon. have a very merry Christmas.

  23. Mary

    I eat sprouts, apples, etc. for comfort food and have done away with those bags of chips. Makes you feel better too.

  26. Michelle H

    I have never used sprouts but I’ve been reading out the benefits and want to begin to use them.

    I like them straight from the jar/growing tray, but I also like them in smoothies, and to add a little crunch in cucumber/avocado roll-ups…

  28. Micki

    I love, love, love sprouts on my sandwich, in my salads and love to put them into my soups just before it is done. They are super tasty and healthy. Thanks for the opportunity to win some and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
