Micro Greens

About a week ago we started to grow our own micro greens.  Here is half of our set-up that we constructed with florescent light fixtures and grow lights. We’ve started out planting seeds once a week but I anticipate increasing the planting frequency once we see how much the harvest yeilds.

Here are some  beets coming up. These were planted about a week ago.

This is our purslane just starting to sprout. So far we are growing red beets, yellow beets, chervil, parsley, chives, nasturtium, mustard greens and bordeaux spinach. We will be adding more to the mix over the next few weeks.  I had forgotten how exciting it was to watch seeds grow, this should be a fun project.
