The Microgreens have come along nicely. In 2 weeks they are ready to harvest. Unfortunately, I’m heading out for 3 weeks, so I won’t benefit from harvesting of them. But hope to get some photos from the family.
I’m taking a fresh pass at Microgreens today, but this time in soil.
I’m running with chicken peas, alfalfa, sun flower, fenugrec, and wheat.
All of which I have read are high producing crops. I’m sprouting them in Grilling trays which cost euro 4 for 5 trays, and I picked up some potting soil for euro 3. 10 for 40L.
I wasn’t sure how dense to plant them but remember hearing that think is better because they support each other and are less delicate… In hindsight I don’t feel they are planted thick enough.
Lastly, I stacked them all on top of each other and added an non sowed tray on top to block the light. I saw the urban farmer stack his this way. So we’ll see.
Planning on sowing a tray of each type once a week, to get some momentum going.
