I planted these microgreens on February 2 and tonight I am harvesting them for our supper. Nothing could be simpler. Put seed starting mix in a container, press it down slightly, scatter your seeds which can be a mix from a company like Botanical Interests which I used, or seeds of any greens you have on hand – asian greens, radishes, beets etc. – and in two weeks or so you will have a harvestable crop. In addition, microgreens are super nutritious! I am sprinkling mine on my lettuce for a real boost.
The peas I planted are taking longer, but I should be able to harvest them in another week or so. I have three more little flats of microgreens coming along, and more pea shoots too. It’s February and I’m gardening!

I need to do this!
What a fun thing to do.
Kylee – My whole little flat, harvested with a scissors didn’t add much flavor to my salad, but think of all that nutrition.
Lisa – Fun – and healthy!
I have had this on the to do list but with being sick I just had no energy. So this reminds me to get busy now!!
Donna – fortunantely microgreens take very little energy.
