I have discovered a way to sprout that takes up only the space of one bucket, because the other buckets have holes drilled in the bottom and stack inside the last one without holes. I am going to find some more buckets and give that a try. Wheat grass or oat grass might be mighty fine for the birdies, and the piggies and the goaties and the sherries..well you get the picture. Oh, and I have a different system to try to implement a variety of sprouts for myself, but space is an issue. I thought the porche would stay warmer. It does have one heat vent, but I guess there is not enough insulation to maintain the heat.
I have been trying to find other solutions to feeding greens in winter, but most people just don't bother, other than a few who sprout soaked grains or collect extras from stores. Since those options have been looked at now, I will have to seak alternatives. In the meantime, they all enjoy a munch of some green alfalfa. It is good for tea, but I have not tried it yet, have you?
