Better Late Than Never

December 12th, 2018

Last winter I did a great job of growing microgreens and herbs for our meals. I had great intentions of starting flats of green when we got back from Israel, but catching up with work and life got in the way. Yesterday morning I finally got two flats started; one filled with spicy microgreens and the other with cilantro.

I put them under the woodstove to warm up, this should help germination rate and speed. After the soil was warm, I put them on top of my grow light stand, which is in the same room as the woodstove and very warm up that high.

Hopefully in 10 days or so we will be enjoying the microgreens for breakfast. Now I just need to remember to start another flat next week.

What are you doing this week?

    Susy, When you harvest the micro greens how do you repurpose the growing medium or do you just use new put the old in the garden?

    This week is still finishing the Christmas Cards and starting on cleaning up and doing some rearranging of the seed starting area. February will be here before I know it.

    Have a great microgreen growing day.
