microgreens at home


In recent years, the popularity of microgreens among vegetarians and fans of healthy eating has increased dramatically, especially during the cold season, when our quivering bodies need extra servings of vitamins. This product can be found on the shelves of many supermarkets and organic farming stores, and can be easily grown in a mini window garden, and in a city apartment.
Unlike the usual leafy vegetables, the same dill or lettuce, which are cultivated in summer in beds and in winter in greenhouses, microgreens are young seedlings of any crops, usually cereals, spices and vegetables, which are in the phase of cotyledon leaves. Only plants that have a bitter taste are not suitable for microgreens, including nightshade tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and common beans. That is, these are no longer seedlings, but also not full-fledged seedlings that have entered the stage of active vegetation.
As they write on https://tutknow.ru/garden_and_orchard/17401-4-sposoba-kak-vyraschivat-mikrozelen-v-domashnih-usloviyah.html, it takes from 10 to 20 days to get juicy microgreens, which, you see, is very convenient for organizing a «vitamin conveyor» at home. Another advantage of growing microgreens on the windowsill of a kitchen or a warm loggia is that there is no need for contact with the ground. Usually such sprouts are driven out on a substrate or rug made of natural materials, for example, linen, felt, coconut, jute, cellulose, etc.
To date, it is not difficult to buy all the necessary elements and devices for growing microgreens. Many suppliers of agricultural products have included in their assortment whole sets for seed germination, which include planting containers (containers), mats (substrates, substrates), and the planting material itself (seeds of individual crops, as well as mixes and all kinds of mixtures).
But since such kits cost a lot, diligent gardeners with many years of experience in growing seedlings have found an almost free way to get microgreens without any problems. All you have to do is have the seeds of the plants you want to grow. As a substrate for germinating grains, you can take the cheapest toilet paper. Small transparent plastic containers and trays, which remain in abundance after eating many foods, can serve as a container for obtaining seedlings.
