Seeds of change is a great source for organic seeds for the garden.

For your jars - search for "sprouting lids" there are plenty of places that sell them.

For seeds, here are a few to consider:

Your Blender / Re: Red Raspberry seeds...will the Vitamix pulverize them to the point
« Last post by John on February 17, 2012, 10:21:08 AM »
First of all... welcome and congratulations on investing in you health with the purchase of a Vitamix!

If you have made smoothies with raspberries in it in a common kitchen blender you will be pleasantly surprised upon making one in a Vitamix.

Most people have no idea there are seeds in it. To a refined palette it is possible to notice a minor texture but it by no means feels like a seed. If your smoothie contains other hard texture/roughage ingredients (like chia seed, dried goji, pears...) any raspberries seeds will be completely unnoticed.

One way to reduce any hint of seed texture even more is to make your blend with frozen raspberries and blend with minimal liquid.

Enjoy your Vitamix!

Thanks Dreamer :)

My Kitchen Aid did not do any better than the Magic Bullet I have been using, but I think red raspberries are so good for me that I put up with the seeds. If they are reduced at all it will be a plus!

Thanks again!

I get all my seeds from Seeds of Change
http://www.seedsofchange.com/

I know they have broccoli and arugula, don't know about alfalfa.

What suppliers are you considering?

I've been wanting to do more sprouting but just haven't done in because it seems overwhelming. The few times I've done it, it's always been in a jar.  How do you grow on baby blankets?
