Microgreens are fun and easy to grow at home. Requiring minimal supplies, space, and effort, microgreens let you witness the miracle of seeds coming alive and growing into a delicious and nutritious snack in just a few weeks. Microgreens are edible crops grown in soil and harvested after the plants have had their first or second pair of true leaves. Although leafy greens and herbs are among the most popular plants to grow as microgreens, other options include amaranth, radish, broccoli, sunflower, and even nasturtium!
You can enjoy fresh microgreens in take-out sandwiches and salads, and can see them growing on windowsills in homes and schools nationwide. Join Holly Froning and James Theuri to learn how to grow your own microgreens. Get tips and growing ideas for windowsill microgreen gardens.
