Small garden umbrellas for plants and gardens
Sprouts in the garden were written about back in the 1930’s by an Irish gardener named Joss O’Toole who described how he grew them in his garden. During that period it was acceptable to plant a watermelon seed in the garden every fall.
As the seed germinated it would sprout roots and willows. A little transplanted into water it would grow in a pail and take on a full size swimming beach ball shape. These were a very popular item in Ireland in the 1930’s. The seeds and roots would be sold for a large price and could be used to start sprouts on a large scale.

I remember reading this about sprouts back in the 1980’s as a kid, and always wondered what ‘Joss O’Toole’ was.
Some time later I was rediscovering some old beanie babies from a local thrift shop and realized that there was some similarity with this story.
Even in the early 90’s people did plant and grow sprouts! It was a wonderful way to add a touch of fun and spontaneity to a garden.
It also was a great way to use up excess food from a harvest, like peas, greens, broccoli or any other vegetable.

‘Canning sprouts in cold water jars’
At one time I’d growing them indoors with little avail and now I grow them in the summer in the garden,
In the beginning I’d sow them in large wooden containers, but after a few months I bought
small jars that would fit in the pantry cupboard. It’s so much easier to find,
go and buy them than to try and find large containers that can grow them for a year.
The sprouts are very easy to grow, the soil is very rich in potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus, the amounts required are quite small and it is readily available from a local garden center.
Usually you buy many containers to get the amount you want, but I simply buy a few pints and that’s plenty for a household.
I also add dried beans to the containers to act as a mulch to keep the soil moist and prevent the sprouts drying out. I get a ton of beans for about $3.00 in a store called Guzman’s in a town called Sugar House, Utah.
I usually get a “Jiffy 1 gallon lidded jar” which holds about 2 to 3 ounces of water and a canning lid to store them in the refrigerator.
I keep the jars covered and let them stand at room temperature for about a week. The tops of the sprouts are small and I think this prevents them from drying out when the grow cooler. When they’re sprouting I just let them go and this usually happens in three to four days.
I water them a few times a day until the top of the sprouts become root-like and about one-quarter of an inch in length and then I just turn the sprouts out to soak up as much water as possible and store in the refrigerator.
Some people put them in the fridge in a canning jar but I found it was much easier just to store them in plain lidded 1 gallon mason jars.
When I need more I simply rinse off the sprouts and store them in the fridge. Then in the morning I take out what I need for the day and rinse them and store in a covered container in the fridge.
I don’t salt them and for some reason they don’t seem to go bad. I just store them up until I need them.
I harvest them by pulling the sprouts out of the jar and leaving them on a towel, rinsing and drying them and placing them in a salad container.
This is one of those little jobs that could make you feel good!
1 can beans or sprouted beans or lentils or soybeans
12 jiffy 1 gallon lidded jars
1 quart glass dish
Sprouting Seed Packet
(you could use a plastic wrap or even parchment paper if you want)
Glass jars lid
1 quart glass dish
After growing in the jars you’ll want to wash them and thoroughly rinse them.
Wash hands and face well with hand cleaner or face wash.
I leave the sprouts in a covered container, so to keep from germs and harmful microorganisms you may want to wash them in hand cleaner for 10 to 15 minutes or soak them in a disinfecting solution like iodine water.
Get a good large glass jar, one that has a lid. I use glass containers in the canning area to store food but you can also use a large “freezer safe” plastic container.
Put a few sprouts on the towel and pat them dry with the towel. If there are several batches just add them together on the towel and pat them dry with the towel.
Put one jar in the glass dish. Pick up a few sprouts and place them in the jar.Nezapomeňte získat alespoň čtyři nebo pět klíčků a prostoru je rozdrtí.
Když jste umístili všechny klíčky do nádoby, naplňte sklenici vodou a ponecháte malou prostor pro klíčky, aby se zvětšily.
Nechte sklenice na teplém místě v kuchyni, kde dostanou nějaké světlo a vzduch. Nenechávejte je v chladničce, protože to způsobí, že se zkazí.
