    Micro Greens

    I just started getting into micro greens. Anyone else here doing this?

    I have my very first batch of sunflower sprouts just about ready.

    Here's a link that explains it... for anyone interested...

    Re: Micro Greens

    What I like about it is that they grow so fast and it's really easy to do.

    Finding good prices for the seeds is a bit of a problem except for the black oil sunflower seed which is about $17 for a 20 lb bag at Wally World. I found a better price at a local farm supply store $17 for a 25 lb bag. The prices for seeds online have been ridiculously high, in general.

    I found 11 x 22 inch grow trays (tray only) at Home Depot.

    Yield = 2:1
    Seed Shelf Life at 70 = 1 - 3 years
    Greens Shelf Life = 1 - 3 weeks

    Nutritional info:

    Calcium, Chlorophyll, Iron, Magnesium, Niacin, Phosphorus, Potassium, copper, and zinc.
