Winter veg

Hi, could somebody advise me on when it's best to start growing sprouts ready for Christmas please?
Also how many cucumbers normally grow on an average cucumber plant, because I have had 17 since planting one plant in May!

If you mean Alfalfa sprouts then it's just about two weeks. If you keep cleaning them just by changing the water they won't turn bad so fast. Just a jar and cheesecloth is all you need but you can buy a container with a special lid.
