Sprouting til spring

It's that time of year when the Gurney's and Burpee catalogs have sent their first wave of catalogs and the coupons have expired. I could order seeds, but I haven't even thought about gardening. It's way too early to order plants, in case they send them too soon. Michigan is in Zone 5 and most catalogs will have a map of the United States by zone. In our zone, we can plant spinach, Swiss chard, parsley, kale and other greens as soon as the ground can be worked, mid-March, that's a month away! I better place my order.
While I wait, I have taken to sprouting Mung beans for my gardening and fresh produce fix.
