    Does anyone here sprout seeds? Is there a list of sproutable seeds. I am currently sprouting wild bird seeds for my birds.

    I have done it for years, have a jar going now. The trick for me at least is finding untreated seed for sprouting for people.. I bought my last batch on Amazon.

    I think it's more a matter of which seeds make sprouts that taste good. I see there is a website called sproutpeople.org. Looks legit, I think, and my software checker says it's safe.
