I'm Sprouting!


This isn't necessarily a design-related post, however, it is related to kitchens, and I design kitchens.  I randomly happened upon a kitchen gadget store yesterday, so I stopped in to say hi.  It's absolutely amazing how many kitchen gadgets there are out there.  I commented to the sales woman that I had no idea there were so many things I needed until I walked in that store.  Yes, I'm a sucker for gadgets.  I admit it.

I restrained myself, and ended up with a single item - the Sprout Master Mini.  It's a simple divided tray system that comes with 2 sets of seeds.  Supposedly, all I need to do is soak the seeds overnight and water them twice a day, and in just a few days I'll have healthy, edible sprouts.   We eat a lot of sprouts on our sandwiches, and I'm sick of buying them in plastic containers at the grocery store.  Plus, I miss my summer patio garden, so I'm excited to grow something in my kitchen.

Here they are at the end of Day 1.  You can't tell from here, so take my word for it.  There are already a few little tiny baby sprouts.


Sounds sorta like a chia pet, huh?
