Grow some cress

Did you know that the very first sandwich, invented and eaten by the Earl of Sandwich, had cold roast beef and watercress as a filling? Cress is a fast growing, edible herb. Once you’ve planted the seeds, they are ready to eat in 5-7 days. Why not get creative with how you grow yours, or have a growing competition with your family of friends to see whose grows the fastest?
