A little variety of Microgreens!

I shared this first picture of our family's micro green garden on Facebook and some of our readers were wondering what micro greens were in the picture. So as promised, all the varieties we currently have growing are pictured.  We find great fun in trying all of the types available and have learned some do grow and taste better than others.  Microgreen or (micro green) gardening is very easy to do and in most cases, you will be harvesting your crops in as little as 10 days.

Microgreens are great tasting when eaten alone or can also be used to add a little flavor to a snack!

If you need seeds, the best place we have found to deal with is Growing Microgreens.com
Their seeds have the best germination rate we had tried.

  2. What soil medium are you using inside? I have a garden window in my family room and would like to use it for microgreens, but I need a nice smelling soil.

    1. Becky, we are using an organic potting soil mixed with peat.

  3. My question is: does it have to be special seeds? Aren't microgreens just the tiny seedlings of the plants?
