Mint is one of the oldest plants used in many cuisines of the world. The stunning aroma that it gives to the dishes is not comparable with any other spice. In the cold season mint is most often used to impart a divine flavor to hot drinks. Therefore, the demand for it grows with the onset of cold weather, and, therefore, the plant remains popular from September to April.

Planting it is best in a sunny area, and watering is quite common. This plant loves heat, so before you start breeding it, you need to evaluate your window sills or loggia for heat and sunshine.
Sprouted wheat sprouts – a sensational and proven way of maintaining health. There is even no need to mention the beneficial properties of sprouts, there is hardly a person who has not heard of them. It is very easy to germinate wheat, it does not require any specific conditions or careful care.
This type of business is suitable for anyone who has at least one free window sill. The only negative – will have to buy seeds specifically designed for germination.

The process is then very simple: seeds are poured into a shallow form and poured over with water so that it does not completely cover them. From above the form is covered with a piece of cotton fabric and left in a warm place. A day later, the seeds are already empty shoots! Now it remains to rinse them under running water and dry them a little – the germinated sprouts are ready for use! A simple business that can pay off in just 1 day – isn’t it a tempting offer?

Next, the root must be planted in the ground (but not deeper than 3 cm) and generously watered. You can harvest the first harvest in 2 weeks!
