Greens for the winter

RomeyRomey Raw Jr. Leader

I was wondering if anyone here grows any type of greens through the winter.  I live where it gets very cold but would like to try to grow some sunflower sprouts etc inside.  I have little experience with this.  I tried it once a few years ago but didn't keep it up.  Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think it is a great idea. Are you just looking to produce some fresh sprouts, or are you wanting to grow the actual plants indoors?

    I was just thinking of the sprouts such as sunflower greens and buckwheat greens.  I know that is a little more involved than sprouting in a jar since you have to sprout then plant the sprouts on a tray of dirt like when growing wheatgrass.

    Yeah. Most of my experience is with sprouting in jars in the back of the cupboard and buying flats of already grown wheatgrass at the store. If it's just growing in dirt, it shouldn't be too difficult as long as you keep them protected and nurtured with the right kind of light.
