Recycled Items to use as Seed starters & Beet Seeds review

There are so many household items that you can recycle to use as seed starters.  Most are very inexpensive to use and would be great to get kids interested in gardening.  The gardens have been put to bed for the winter, but these are the months to think about starting seeds indoors, so that they will be ready for spring.

 If you would like to put some of these seed starting ideas to use, you will need some seeds.  One of my sponsors Vremi has graciously provided me with some organic beet seeds for sprouting.  These seeds are a high quality USDA certified Organic Non-GMO variety.  I’ve grown sprouts in the past but never beet seeds that will sprout.  The seeds add a light early flavor to my dishes and they also have a wonderful color! I have a rotisserie tray handy so I used this as my seed planting medium.  Imagine adding this color to your salads!
