This stackable tower is a bioset sprouter. Here is how it works: you place sprouting seeds in the clear trays and place them on the bottom solid white tray. Then cap off the tower with the top white tray and fill with water. The top and clear trays have a drip spout that runs the water from the top, through each clear tray, and is caught in the bottom tray. Twice a day empty the bottom tray and fill the top one with water. In about 3 -5 days you have healthy sprouts to add to salads and sandwiches. How easy is that?

I purchased the bioset from Johnny's Selected Seeds about 20 years ago. I still order the sprouting seeds from them. And I've always sprouted a different seed in each tray, as shown in today's pics.

The other day an idea hit me up-side my head...why not try putting several kinds of seeds in a tray and start it, then a few days later do another tray, and a few days after that start the third tray? This way I'd always have a variety of sprouts to use.
Well, we never know if an idea will work until we try it, so now I am putting on my Mad Scientist safety glasses and throwing caution to the wind. Will report back if the results are a success or failure.
