Questions about Sprouting
(Virginia Beach, VA)
I just discovered your site through Dr. Mercola's articles and I am very happy that I did; I already found a lot of wonderful information that I can put to use.
Six years ago I had a brain tumor which was surgically removed and since then I am happy and grateful to say that I am doing very well, and even raising a little boy (my grandson) who is now 5 and of whom my husband and I have custody.
Since the surgery I have made a lot of changes in my lifestyle and eating healthy is a priority. However, I have never used sprouts let alone grown any. I would like to start by sprouting sunflower seeds but I am not sure what you mean when you say using compost for the trays. Can I use organic soil, and if it must be compost what kind of compost do I look for to buy?
My 2nd question is: When you wash the sunflower seeds and put them in the cupboard until they germinate, do you put them spread flat, or can they be just in a large cup? I just subscribed to your site and I look forward to hearing from you and growing some sprouts. Thank you so much.
