Talkback: Growing cress
Mustard seeds give you a good crop to sprinkle on salads or omelettes at this time of year too. And don't forget mung beans and other sprouts to keep colds at bay. I have cress to thank for getting me running to school as a five-year-old to see how my saucerful was growing on the classroom windowsill so have always loved it. Children love to grow a broad bean as well and sprout a carrot top. I am sure there must be lots more ways to get them interested, probably being able to eat something scrumptious made with their produce would be the best enticement.
