Microgreens- quick and fresh greens!

Microgreens are tiny plants of almost any vegetable variety you like. They are not sprouts, but are tiny seedlings between 10-14 days old.

Here is what you'll need:

  • A tray or container at least 2-3 inches deep. Any container that holds the soil together and can wash out excess water can be your planter, e.g. old drawers, take-away food containers, used soda bottles, egg cartons, etc.

  • A drill or some other tool you can make holes with (depends on the material of your container)

  • Enough soil to fill your container, e.g. 2 parts of coco soil to 1 part of any manure, such as home compost or vermicompost.

  • Seeds of your choice: Use organic seeds. If you can’t find them, you can use treated seeds as well. Treated seeds should be washed before use. For faster and reliable germination, you can soak the seeds overnight. This also helps to remove all surface chemicals from the seeds.

  • Water
