I’ve been meaning to sow some Micro Greens for these past couple of years and have either just forgotten or been engrossed in growing enough Lettuce to sink a small ship. But since I already have a nice collection of greens growing away in the greenhouse (Rocket, Corn Salad, Pak Choi and Lettuce leaves) I thought I would add the micros to the mix. I went for the Micro Spicy Mix, my reasoning being that if I’m going to eat a tiny bit of something then it had better have a kick to it.
I snipped them with scissors and washed them in a fine colander. Then piled them on a cracker with my favourite stuff. Amazing! so fresh and tasty and green. A real treat.
In a flat tray I probably have enough for two or three more snacks like this. So I’m not sure that they are worth me growing them in large quantities but I’ll definitely be growing some at this time of year when there is little else around and for occasional treats like this. It only took them about a week to grow. Which is a pretty impressive ground to plate turn around!
