How to grow microgreens

Beet microgreens - research proves microgreens are supernutritious
I hope you get to check out the spring issue of Heirloom Gardener magazine.  My article about how to grow microgreens is inside, along with many really interesting articles and lots of DIY projects.  Here's the shortened 3-step version - because I'm THAT confident anyone can grow a great flat of healthful, delicious, and beautiful microgreens that easily.

STEP 1: Heavily sow seeds onto shallow tray (with drainage holes) of soil.  Cover with a fine layer of soil.

STEP 2: Daily, mist until soil is completely moist.  

STEP 3: Harvest in about 10-14 days by snipping just above the soil line.

  1. I have heard about this super food too!

  2. I have been experimenting with microgreens and got a kit to grow them in water, but in my tropical climate that just turned out to be a source for insects to breed in! I also experimented in seed raising mix but with limited succcess. now I have gone back to growing sprouts and developing a love for them. I grew some snow peas to microgreen size in my sprouter, and then tossed them into the garden after snipping the tops off, now they are climbing a trellis, so living a double life :)

    1. If you have chickens, I bet they would be a great treat for them! :o)

  3. That is just fabulous about your article, Wendy! The hot pink new growth on seedlings are tooo pretty!! And love that your girls get involved in the process...;D

  4. I love growing microgreens!!


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
