Microgreens are small, pretty, delectable and delicious looking produce that provide an exciting and fun culinary experience. However, these tiny greens will not be great enough to feed the family if you cannot find a way to grow them in your kitchen.
You may want to try growing microgreens in your regular vegetable garden or a container but you need to find a way to keep them fresh so that they will be tasty and delicious. At this point you may be thinking that you will have to buy some kind of “zipper” vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cucumbers which is true, but this can cost a lot. It will also take a lot of your precious time, so you may want to consider another option for getting the fresh veggies you want.
Growing microgreens in your home can be a rewarding way to help your family as well as save money. These “mini” veggies can be grown indoors as part of a vegetable garden or container or outside in your garden. This means that you can grow them in either location as long as you have the right kind of water. When it comes to containers, you will need a water source such as a pond or a well that provides water.
Microgreens can be grown in a water feature that is either a bed of gravel or in a shallow, shallow well. Make sure that the water source is deep enough to soak up the droplets that fall from the microgreens when they are harvested. To ensure that you get the best results, you will need to water the microgreens once each week.
Planting microgreens requires some water, so make sure that the area is dry before you plant them. Make sure that there is no standing water that could lead to rotting. When the microgreens are planted, place them directly into the watering hole so that they are submerged and ready to be planted.
It is important to pay attention to the exact direction you plan on planting the microgreens because you do not want to waste water on plants that are in the wrong position. As soon as the microgreens are finished, remove them from the water and transfer them to a sunny, dry spot to start feeding them with a fertilizer. During the first few weeks, the microgreens will need nutrients from you and the fertilization will supply this need.
To make sure that the microgreens will not rot, water them with distilled water during the day and with clean water at night. This allows the microgreens to stay hydrated without letting the water evaporate which would kill them. It is recommended that you do not use ice cubes as microgreens are known to thrive on just about any food source they can find.
The bottom line is that microgreens can be grown in any location and given the proper amount of water, sunlight and nutrients. They can be planted anywhere as long as they get enough light, food and water. They will soon begin to grow and you will notice that you get more fruits and vegetables every year than you can even imagine.
Microgreens can be used as a quick and easy way to eat healthy and fresh. They are low in calories and contain less salt, sugar and fat than vegetables. Using them in salads or as a garnish is a great way to add some flavor to your daily diet.
After harvest, the microgreens will continue to grow without any water because they are completely sealed. If you are interested in preparing the microgreens themselves, simply sprinkle the leaves with salt and water.
Once you are done eating the leftover food, just add about a tablespoon of water and boil until the leaves are tender. Once you are done, then drain and dry the leaves. Now you have delicious, delectable and healthy fresh-looking microgreens that you can eat by themselves or garnish other recipes to add to the flavor.
Organic microgreens will offer you a healthier way to enjoy food without any of the additives or preservatives found in most grocery store-bought salads. With a little bit of effort and a basic understanding of how to grow them, you can enjoy healthy and delicious veggies for years to come.
