Once you learn how to sprout microgreens, you will be blown away by how quickly and easily you can have some of the world’s most nutritious food at your finger tips.

In as little as 14 days you can have a nutritional powerhouse that tastes great on soups, salads, and sandwiches.

In fact, did you know microgreens have 4 to 6 times more nutrients than an actual full grown plant?

Throw some microgreens in a smoothie and you are getting a huge nutritional punch.

My favorite microgreen mix is this spicy mix.

The spicy mix is just a mix that includes radish seeds and mustard seeds. You simply are harvesting them when they get to the length in this picture below – that is what makes them a microgreen!

I also enjoy the mild mix, a mix of swiss chard, beet, cabbage and kohlrabi seeds.

Microgreens require minimal light and a good quality soil to grow. It only takes between 14 and 21 days for your sprouts to be ready!

I know my berry baskets aren’t very decorative, but it allows me to plant a new crop every week. That way, I always have my sprouts at the ready.
