I’m into growing vegetables these days. However I don’t have enough land for growing. Still, I have learned about the difference between ‘true-bred’ and ‘first filial’ generation and now I feel like eating and growing true-bred vegetables as far as possible. The easy first step can be this small vegetable which can be grown inside of the house. This vegetable can protect our bodies from getting cancers. I can buy sprouts at a supermarket but the ones I grew taste much better. In Japan only one seed shop sells true-bred, but anyone can order seeds from them on the internet.



First , in the small pot, place a little soil, cotton and water. Then put in some washed seeds. It will take a few days for them to sprout. Until they grow 5 to 10 cm tall, they have to be shaded. When they become tall enough, they are ready to get sunshine. It has been a little cool for this season and it took about a week for them to grow this level.

They are a little small but I added these young fresh vegetables as a garnish.
