I’ve been seeing microgreens at the grocery store for quite a few years now, they’re not sprouts, but little seedlings grown in soil. Johnny’s Seeds sells the seed mixes for them along with individual varieties. I purchased a packet last year with hopes of growing them last winter. That didn’t happen, but I did manage to get two flats sowed yesterday.
I have one flat on a heat mat, both are on my light stand ready for the light to go on when the seedlings emerge. I’ve read that these can be ready to harvest in 2-4 weeks, which seems like the perfect length of time. I’ll keep you posted on my efforts to add a homegrown microgreens to my plate during the long, cold winter months here in Maine.
