Another new adventure for me this year has been growing my own alfalfa sprouts. This is pretty much the "instant gratification" of the gardening world- a week from start to finish.
I used a jar, a jar ring, and a cut piece of pantyhose. The seeds are soaked for a good 8-12 hours the first day, then rinsed twice daily after that. Lastly, they get a sun bath for about 15 minutes before they end up in a container in the refrigerator.
