my latest discovery is pea shoot salad. step one- buy a packet of dried peas from supermarket (not from gardening section) I got one from asda- 250g for 50p and it has many many seeds step two- soak seeds for 12 hours then plant 3 or 4 to a cell in seed trays. bung on windowsills. step three- they grow like fury and at about 2 weeks are about 6 inch tall or more step four- chop top 3 inch off and either eat raw in a salad, stir fried or steamed as a veg- or feed to parrot step five- they will regrow and you can eat more in another couple of weeks step six- dump the roots /compost on garden- pea roots produce natural fertiliser which is great for improving garden soil. this really is the easiest cheapest veg /salad hack ever!
