Cress beginning to sprout!

The cress is just beginning to sprout and that means that it won’t be much longer before the delicious and nutritious green is ready to eat.  The flavor and nutrition is similar to watercress, but in Colorado, watercress doesn’t grow very well and we must use other varieties.  Sometimes called upland cress, or dry cress, or garden cress, or nasturtium, these are more commonly raised as flowers for ornamentation by gardeners who don’t know that it’s a vegetable of the highest caliber, with something good for every organ in your body, packed with vitamins and minerals.
