The Sproutman’s guide to indoor organic gardening shows you step by step, how to grow these delicious baby greens and mini-vegetables in just one week from seed to salad. This guide can make anyone a self sufficient gardener of sprouts that are bursting with concentrated nutrition. Sprouts the Miracle Food includes comprehensive nutrition charts, questions and answers, seed resources, illustrations, photo’s & Charts.


“Yes, as one person noted, the humor is sort of out of place. Bad puns throughout. I’m still giving it a 5/5 because it’s the most helpful sprout book I’ve seen.

Friends of mine recommended it to me – they have an attractive set-up of baskets of sprouts growing in little seed-germinator covered plastic trays. They are thrilled with the book, and we are excited about starting to sprout. We did sprouts years ago in jars, but this system is better.

Though the book could be more condensed, it’s still an easy read in a few hours. And where else is this vital information available in such thorough detail? If you are considering sprouting, you will find the information valuable.”


“This is a great book for a person who is interested in sprouting; it is very detailed and is truly full of very interesting and useful information. The book also helps to nullify a lot of the myth about toxins and hidden dangers in sprouts. The real dangers, in actuality, exist in cooked, processed, adulterated, toyed-with, sprayed, chemicalized, distorted foods (which our grocery shelves are full of). I am now 50 years old. Back in my youthful college days, I used to sprout a great deal, eating living foods exclusively. Though I stayed being a vegetarian, I got back into the cooked food craze… eating food like it was a drug for “taste” only. I work with the multiply handicapped and even though I am a teacher I have to do a lot of lifting (of adults who are not at all feather-weight). My arthritis (which runs in the family) was killing me, despite taking all kinds of natural and man made supplements. Getting back to live food was the answer I needed. Steve’s book was inspirational and very helpful. I should have never deviated from what was truly the most nutritious way to eat! Steve’s book is a priceless tool for anyone interested in sprouting… it has all kinds of neat tips and suggestions. I would not want Steve’s book, including his Kitchen Garden book… missing from my shelves! As Hippocrates said: “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”
