We're adding microgreens to our line-up!
I've got my supplies ready to go: microgreens seeds, trays, coconut fiber pads, spray bottle with pH balanced aquaponic system water, LED light. Now I just need to get up the nerve to spread the seeds and see what happens!
These little beauties are nutritious and have fantastic flavor that can be added to so many different recipes. I can't wait for you to try them!
According to a 2012 research study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry*, “In general, microgreens contain considerably higher concentrations of vitamins and carotenoids than their mature plant counterparts, although large variations were found among the 25 species tested. In comparison with nutritional concentrations in mature leaves, the microgreen cotyledon leaves possessed higher nutritional densities.”
