STEP 1: Preparing a little greenhouse/garden bed
- Purchase some whole sunflower seeds that are meant for human consumption (Not the kind you feed the birds with). I order my seeds from the Sprout People, but I am sure there are other places you can find them as well.
- Save one of those white plastic food containers with clear plastic tops that you get from ordering take-out food and poke a few holes in the bottom with scissors or a pen (If you don’t order take-out then you could always use a regular plant pot that has drainage). Save the plastic top to use as a cover while the seeds are under the soil and then you can use the top as a drip tray as they start to grow bigger. (As you can see below I saved two of the clear plastic tops so I could have a top and a drip tray at the same time – We order a lot of Thai take-out because bringing a 3 year old and a 1 year old to a restaurant is just not fun!)
- Get organic potting soil and fill the plastic tray up to the rim (or about 3/4 full). Now you have a little greenhouse/garden bed all set up for your seeds.
