September Morn Mix
I named this after the Neil Diamond Song. It has the green of summer (mung bean); the golden hues of both summer flowers and autumn leaves (alfalfa) and the dark browns of late fall (broccoli).
If you have gluten issues and cannot tolerate wheat grass juice, this mix is for you. High in Chlorophyll, Zero Gluten and you don't need a special juicer. Actually, eating them is okay, too.
Speckled Peas for Shoots
From a recent review:
"Love them! They sprout quickly in the square sprouters. Before they get too big, I separate the sprouts from their peas and roots and refrigerate them. They keep well. I can add them to a bowl of soup, too, and they do just fine."
Red Cabbage and Broccoli
Both of these are from the same family of Brassica's so you get double the nutritional value.
Delaware County Mix
A review says it best:
For me, there is no better sprout than a 50-50 clover alfalfa: perfect blend of snap and sweet. My first sprouting efforts were for an economical method of having more "true sprouts" with every meal. These have especially high yield and are almost impossible to mess up. Buy them by the pound and always have a big bowl handy.
Whole Buckwheat for Greens
Many people say these sprouts taste like lettuce and use them as a basis for salads. High in chlorophyll, they are mild.
Baby Black Sunflower
Yes, you will often need to remove the hulls (shells) by hand. Put your favorite music on and make it a meditation. The time and effort are well worth the prize at the end.
Jill's Sprout Salad
Great friend of The Sprout House, Jill Nussinow "The Veggie Queen" came up with this mix. She sprouts it and serves it with her favorite dressing. I eat it right from the sprouter. Delish!

I wrote a blog post about using sprouts as part of a good diet and healthy nutrition for dogs. That statement carries over to other pets. Cats love wheat grass ready to cut and juice. I don't know how they know, but they do. Photographic evidence of Margaret's cat proves it. A lot of my clients are furry and feathery, but reptiles enjoy them, too.
The Sprout House Blog.
September is my favorite month to sprout, well one of my favorite months to sprout because I like to sprout all year. We usually get many fresh veggies and greens from our local farms and I don't need to sprout as much during the summer. September's sprouting is a time to ramp up our production.
It is a great month to sprout because of its lower humidity and generally cooler temperatures. Need some help with getting your sprouting started or want to ramp up your harvest? Check out our PDF's for guidance and answers to many sprouting questions.
