    Beautiful work Peter – thank you. What a great venue to shoot your video –
    The spectacular Monkey Valley resort overlooking Long Beach in Noordhoek –
    Cape Town. Love to Judy Sole and her team. Michael.

    Tankx for the video! :)
    I’ve a question because of the salt-water-solution for watering – You said,
    it’s recommended for wheatgras and sunflower-sprouts, but not for watering
    the open soil-area in a garden, because there a plants, who don’t like it.
    But if I grow exclusive on trays, are any other kinds of seeds suitable for
    watering with salt-water-solution? Or is it only recommendable for
    sunflower and wheatgras?

    Hey Peter

    Thank you for sharing with us!
    What do I do with the soil after cutting off greens?

    Thank you

    “30 times more nutritious than other salad greens” ???

    Than which salad greens?

    Which nutrients?

    He’s making good points about nutrition and portion control but at the same
    time he looks like he’s suffering from malnutrition himself.

    In this lesson Peter shows us one of the most important aspects of healthy,
    sustainable and enjoyable living: how to grow your own food, even if you
    don’t have a garden. Sunflower greens are 30 times more nutritious than
    other salad greens. Learn how to grow these & other greens quickly & easily
    to give your body the natural goodness it needs to keep you free from
    sickness, full of energy and a constructive part of the ecosystem.

    hi i soaked some sunflower and some pumpkin seeds last night and planted
    them tonight…I will let u no how they go. Thanks 4 posting UK

    I am now sprouting sunflower, chia and flaxseeds. I started inviting
    friends for a green smoothie drink at home. Thanks once again.

    My mother has a coconut farm in the Philippines, they were talking about
    putting some salt as fertilizer. …I´m not an agriculturist but it makes
    sense as my sister has one coconut palm up in the mountain about 1,000
    meter ASL, the fruits are not as good as the ones we have down near the
    sea. Coconuts planted along the shore are sweeter and got lots of oil than
    those up in the mountain.

    Thanks for sharing! I´m so excited to start growing sunflower today. By the
    way, the scenery´s amaziing! I might need something like that to keep
    growing greens. lol!

    I was in a farming class about bio-nutrient farming and the speaker was
    talking about remineralizing our farm lands with rock dust! For healthy
    nutrient packed food he recommended 3ppm Boron, 80-90ppm Manganese, 4ppm
    Copper, 8ppm Zinc, 2ppm Colbalt, 1ppm Molybdenum and 0.5ppm Selenium. Many
    stone dusts will contain these trance minerals at various levels- so I
    think it would be a great idea

    Thanks for the tip on the sea salt.. thats amazing!!!!!! much love

  13. James Grackling January 22, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    Excellent video, and I am an Ubuntu user as well. For the mineralization
    part, I thought of using very fine (less than 50 micron) rock dust from
    crushed river rock. Any thoughts on that idea? Congratulations on a
    fantastic presentation.

    great video, your video on growing microgreens is by far the easiest one
    i’ve seen – and the info on the sea salt is also very useful to know. Thank
    you.

    Thanks! I’m going to grow some of these in the spring on my balcony. I love
    apartment friendly organic growing.

  16. Scalerwave Signal January 22, 2015 at 11:26 pm

    Great info, thanks for posting !

  17. omgomg24368686 January 23, 2015 at 12:16 am

    Oh and if you are using rock dust, the minerals can only be available for
    the plant if its attached to a carbon- so it must be mixed into the
    soil/mix and sit for 2 weeks before planting.

  18. Michael J King January 23, 2015 at 12:54 am

    good use of home grown sunflowers seeds, I leave some for birds, some for
    replanting but sprouts are a great easy option for a crop

    Thank you, I’ve been making this exact mistake.

  27. Geovonta Lindsay January 23, 2015 at 6:29 am

    What about foods when those energy shots are persuading us to take when the
    “2:30 feeling hits” would be very helpful.

    I love it! Superfoods #1

  28. victory01 January 23, 2015 at 6:39 am

    First the nuts and now tryptophan? What’s next, chloroform?
