Sprouts have been used medicinally and nutritionally for centuries. Up to about 500 years ago Chinese physicians recognized and prescribed sprouts to cure many ailments. Sprouts are the only form of agriculture that can be locally grown and available in all four seasons. These “baby” vegetables are grown from seed to salad in only week. That makes them great Y2K food. In fact, one pound of alfalfa seed will yield 10-14 pounds of fresh mini-salad greens. Whether you are on top of a mountain or in a bunker with artificial light, you can still grow this fast, organic food. Sprouts are also outstanding and cheep feed for animals who also benefit from the nutritional value and get a excellent boost to the immune system by eating them.
