Growing Micro-Greens 101

If you are considering growing your own food for the first time… or maybe you are even a very experienced gardener but never considered  the benefits of growing sprouts and Micro Greens…. Im here to tell you this is the most economical and easiest way to start supplementing your diet. It has been said that sprouts and Micro Greens are the most nutrition you can get per dollar spent on vegetables.

WebMD said…  ” Researchers found microgreens like red cabbage, cilantro, and radish contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts” and

“The microgreens were four- to 40-fold more concentrated with nutrients than their mature counterparts,” says researcher Qin Wang, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland in College Park. “When we first got the results we had to rush to double and triple check them.”

While Micro Greens cost more when purchased at supermarkets they are by far the easiest and cost effective  thing you can grow at your own.

The video below show step by step instructions on how you can grow your own Micro-Greens . From preparing your soil mix and making what I call ” soil Taco’s” all the way thru harvest , this video shows you everything you need to know about growing Micro-Greens.
