How to Grow Your Own Micro Greens

What you’ll need:
  • Flat, draining, seedling tray
  • organic potting soil and sheep manure
  • organic micro green seeds
Steps
1. Mix 1 part sheep manure to 3 parts potting soil in a clean pail
2.Spread your mix approximately 2-3 inches deep in the seed tray; making sure it is fairly level.
3. Spread an even coat of seeds onto mix of approximately 4 – 6 seeds per square inch.
4. Soak the seeds with a light mist (small watering can works well)
5. Sprinkle a light coating of mix on top to barely cover seeds. Add another light sprinkle of water to moisten the top mix.
6. Keep out of sun at room temperature for 3 to 4 days until you see them start to germinate.
7. Put indoors in full sun, and water as needed (usually morning and afternoon).
8. In 3 to 4 weeks, the true leaves appear (which will be the second set of leaves). Cut micro greens at base of stem with scissors
9. Enjoy!
