There’s nothing better than having access to fresh, nutrient-dense salad greens that practically grow themselves, right?
I can already hear you saying, “Yeah, that’d be nice, if they existed…”
Well, they do, and they’re called microgreens.
Practically any plant can be grown as a microgreens, which is just the even-younger cousin of baby greens. Typically harvested around 8-20 days after planting, microgreens are the quickest turnaround crop you’ll ever grow in your garden.
