Hello Mutineers! If you’ve followed us here on the website or on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook, you know that I like to share the things we actually use around Mutiny Ranch. Since our interests are diverse these items range from animal care to gardening implements but also footwear and kitchen gadgets. No matter what the item is though if we recommend it here then we personally own and use it or have researched it enough to have it on our “wishlist”.
The Mutiny Ranch Item of the Day for 5/12/2021 is pretty much anything from True Leaf Market Seed Co.
Today’s item is so versatile I couldn’t wait to share it! I know we have readers who garden and homestead as well as some who are still traveling full-time either in RVs, vans, truck campers, tents, or boats. But I’ll bet something they have in common is the desire to have access to fresh produce and True Leaf Market makes that possible for most situations.
I’ve been a vegetarian for most of my life with a few “transgressions” here and there when I dabbled with eating fish for a while. The point being I eat a lot of veggies. A lot. Like, really…buckets of them. Some of my favorite accent veggies are sprouts and microgreens but let me tell you, they’re about 1 million times better when they are homegrown.
Homegrown sprouts and microgreens are the absolute freshest veggies that you can grow easily in most places. You can also grow them year-round! Both are considered living food meaning they are in their 100% natural state. If you grow your own you’ll be able to harvest them seconds before eating them which means there’s less time for them to lose their nutrients, probiotics, and prebiotics. These foods are rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants and help promote healthy gut bacteria. Plus they taste great!
I made videos on growing both sprouts and microgreens which you can find on my YouTube Channel. It’s super easy and there’s no need to be intimidated. And if you purchase your seeds from True Leaf Market I’m sure you’ll have success. They are, by far, the best seeds I’ve used (and I’ve tried a lot).
But even if you aren’t a fan of sprouts or microgreens (who are you people?!?!) don’t worry, True Leaf has an extensive selection of vegetable, herb, and flower seeds. I’m sure you’ll find something worth trying out in your own garden! They even have cover crop seeds, fertilizers, seed sowers, compost supplies, and more…so much more!
For those who are looking into sprouting and/or growing microgreens, my growing trays came from True Leaf Market, and although I happened to find my Handy Pantry Sprout Garden as a “thrift store “score” you can find the same model here. BE sure to check my videos (linked above) and check out True Leaf Market’s Learning Center (found under the INFO tab on their website) and you’ll soon be on your way to growing fresh food where ever you live!
