Micro Greens are nutrient power houses and delicious in salads, soups, top your pizza and especially good in sandwiches. They are incredibly easy to grow and within two weeks you are harvesting. I use the soil method as I use my home grown compost material with great results. Simply fill a container with soil, water a little and pack the soil down a bit. Make sure you use a container with no drain holes. Now your soil is moist not soggy. I use a 10 X 10 inch plastic grow container I purchased from True-Leaf Market. I evenly sprinkle 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons of micro seeds on the top of the soil and gently press them into the soil. The soil should not cover the seeds , you want the seed to nestle into the soil. Spritz gently with water and cover with another grow container so your seeds can germinate in the dark. I then spritz them twice a day and cover. This takes about 4 days. When the micro greens begin to sprout I then remove the cover and place them under a grow light. Some say you dont need a grow light in the summer, I prefer the combination of grow light and natural light with great results. You can also place them in a sunny window or patio. Remember once the first set of leaves have reached 2 to 3 inches you are ready to harvest.
I especially like True-Leaf Market seeds and products. Their prices are reasonable and high quality seeds and products. They will answer questions and have info tutorials. Trueleafmarket.com
So find a container, even a plastic yogurt container will get you started, fill with potting soil water a little , sprinkle some seeds and spritz with a little water twice a day, dont forget to cover until the sprouts begin to show themselves, its that easy and yummy.
