Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening: How to Grow Nutrient-Dense, Soil-Sprouted Greens in Less Than ten days
If you’re ready to grow greens for your family to use in salads and smoothies and do it year round in an easy and low-tech way, this is the book for you. It’s based on the research and experience of author Peter Burke. He didn’t want to invest a lot of money into fancy growing light setups. Instead, he used what he had on hand and was able to figure out a simple method of growing greens with nothing more than a container, some soil, a cupboard, a window spot and of course some seeds.
With the simple step-by-step directions outlined in the book, you’ll be up and running with your very own window boxes full of budding salad greens in no time.
VICTORIO VKP1014 Sprouting Kit
Sprouts are a great addition to salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Plus they make a pretty edible garnish when you’re entertaining. But buying sprouts at the grocery store on a regular basis can cost quite a pretty penny. It’s infuriating when those sprouts you spent your hard earned money on go bad before you get a chance to use them all.
Thankfully there’s a simple solution. You can grow your sprouts at home, right on your counter. The Sprouting Kit from Victorio makes it quick and easy and with the stackable design you’ll be pleasantly surprised how many sprouts you can grow.
The four-piece design of this kit gives you lots of options. Use just one or two if you don’t need a lot of sprouts ready, or stack the planting and have a fresh tray to use every other day. Or get enough sprouts ready to feed an army (almost… but definitely enough to keep a sandwich shop in business for a day or feed a small crowd) by using all four trays simultaneously.
Since this system is stackable, it doesn’t take up a lot of space and watering is quick and easy with the built-in flow through. The kit includes everything you need to get started including seeds.
You’ll be up and running in no time with a simple sprouting system like this. There’s almost no way to mess this up. And there’s no long waiting time for a harvest either. Depending on temperature and growing conditions you’ll have sprouts ready to harvest in two to six days. Talk about instant gratification gardening.
This would also make a wonderful teaching tool for the kids. Get them involved in the set-up and planting. Not only will they learn a lot about growing food in a fast and efficient way, but they’ll also be much more likely to eat this nutrient dense veggies if they’re involved in growing them. Give the Sprouting Kit a try. It’s easy to clean too.

Since the plants grow under optimal conditions, they grow up to five times as fast as if you planted them in a pot of potting soil and set them in the window. And unlike outdoor gardening, there’s no need to head outside to grab some fresh herbs and lettuce leaves when you’re ready to cook dinner.
Just grab your kitchen shears and cut what you need. It doesn’t get any fresher and easier than this. And there’s a surprisingly huge variety of things you can grow with these little indoor gardens. You can grow herbs, salad greens, vegetables, and even flowers.
