If you live in a warmer climate such as Arizona, California, Hawaii and Florida then you might still be growing.  You might even be growing cool weather crops such as Kale, Arugula, Swiss Chard ,
Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Cabbage.

If your area is COLD or snowy at the moment then you might try growing SPROUTS in winter!

Do you eat Sprouts?  Do you grow your own sprouts?

SPROUTS grown in a jar do not require dirt or sun, Just Water!!!  It's SO EASY!

I have been growing/eating sprouts for a while.  I sprout "cat grass" which is actually wheat grass, for our 2 cats and they LOVE it.  I sprout Mung Beans, Broccoli and Alfalfa for sandwiches & salads.
Save Money and Sprout Your Own!
Sprouts are nutrient dense and take up almost no space.  If you want fresh GREENS without having to grow a garden, sprouts are the way to go.  
Do you know that a small bag of Mung Beans sprouts (organic) at my local grocery store costs almost $8?
That's ridiculous!

Mung Beans

When I sprout 1/3 cup of Mung Beans I usually get about 3 cups (or more) of sprouts after 5-6 days!!!

Most important, by growing your own you are in control of your food.  You can decide when to grow, how much to grow and grow them organically.

Each cup, or 104 g serving, of sprouted raw mung beans provides approx 155 mg potassium.
Mung Bean Sprouts
Each 1-cup serving of raw mung bean sprouts provides 14 mg vitamin C, or nearly one quarter of the daily value for vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin that is essential for proper immune function and wound healing. Another benefit of mung bean sprouts is their 60 mcg folic acid, or 15 percent of the daily value for this B vitamin, which is an especially important nutrient for women who may become pregnant, because it reduces the risk for neural tube birth defects.

"Eating broccoli sprouts may be able to protect people from cancer, according to scientists from Johns Hopkins. The Maryland-based researchers found that young broccoli sprouts contain a substance called sulforaphane in concentrated amounts. Sulforaphane helps the body fight cancer, and may prevent certain cancers from developing. Researchers call this phenomenon chemoprotection. 
Asthma sufferers may benefit from a daily dose of broccoli sprouts, as studies have shown a decrease in inflammation of the airways after eating the vegetable. A study reported in the March 2009 issue of Clinical Immunology reports that sulforaphane, the same compound that can prevent and fight cancer, reduced inflammation associated with asthma and nasal allergies. In addition to broccoli sprouts, sulforaphane is naturally occurring in cauliflower, mature broccoli, brussels sprouts and cabbage."
