BEST OF THE BUNCH GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT.

Sprouting seeds The veg patch may be starting to look bare, so grow some sprouting seeds indoors. There's no mess with soil or compost - all you need is a jar and an airing cupboard to grow Chinese bean sprouts, also known as mung beans, which may not be as long as the ones you buy in supermarkets, but they'll be just as tasty. Soak a handful of seeds overnight, rinse them in water and put them in a large glass jar, covered with a circle of muslin or white cotton instead of a lid and then transfer it to a warm, dark place, rinsing the beans twice a day.
