Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening: How to Grow Nutrient-Dense, Soil-Sprouted Greens in Less Than 10 days
The Low-Tech, No-Grow-Lights Approach to Abundant Harvest Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening offers good news: with nothing more than a cupboard and a windowsill, you can grow all the fresh salad greens you need for the winter months (or throughout the entire year) with no lights, no pumps, and no greenhouse. Longtime gardener Peter Burke was tired of the growing season ending with the first frost, but due to his busy work schedule and family life, didn’t have the time or interest in high-input grow lights or greenhouses. Most techniques for growing what are commonly referred to as “microgreens” left him feeling overwhelmed and uninterested. There had to be a simpler way to grow greens for his family indoors. After some research and diligent experimenting, Burke discovered he was right―there was a way! And it was even easier than he ever could have hoped, and the greens more nutrient packed. He didn’t even need a south-facing window, and he already had most of the needed supplies just sitting in his pantry. The result: healthy, homegrown salad greens at a fraction of the cost of buying them at the market. The secret: start them in the dark. Growing “Soil Sprouts”―Burke’s own descriptive term for sprouted seeds grown in soil as opposed to in jars―employs a met...

Grow 'n Serve Microgreen Kit - Attractive Table Centerpiece Planter Tray + Fiber Soil + Spray Bottle + Seed. Sprout Healthy Zesty Superfood Greens. Great Indoor Garden Gift for Men, Women, Foodie
What are Microgreens? They're baby veggie shoots grown from seed for about 10 days near a window, clipped and eaten fresh. These sassy little seedlings add a burst of intense flavors, vivid colors and crisp textures that transform any meal into a nutrient-packed gourmet experience. They're good for you! Microgreens are small but mighty and pack a potent punch of nutrients that contribute to good health. The seed contains its own food supply that it uses to grow until it can manufacture it from soil, light and water. This stored food within the seed is responsible for its high nutrient content. In 2012, University of Maryland scientists discovered they contain 4 to 40 times more nutrients than mature veggies. We don't always get the nutrition we need. In fact, it's questionable what the nutrient content is in what we think is nutritious or even if they're GMO and pesticide free. That's why it's always best to grow your own food. There's no easier, quicker or more nutrient packed way then growing Microgreens in your home year round.Until now, growing Microgreens has been limited to plastic trays or recycled tins, not so good looking decor. And it's been confusing on what to buy and how to do it. Now, with the Grow 'n Serve Microgreens Kit, you get everything you need, premeasured a...

Terrafibre Hemp Grow Mat - Perfect for Microgreens, Wheatgrass, Sprouts - 40 Pack 5" x 5" (Fits 5" by 5" Growing Tray or 8 in a Standard 10" X 20" Germination Tray) Fully Biodegradable
ALL NATURAL HEMP FIBRE GROW MAT SIZE: Each mat is pre cut to fit a 5" x 5" growing tray or for 8 to fit a standard 10" x 20" growing tray.ORGANIC MATTER SUSTAINABLY SOURCED: The fibres of the industrial hemp plant are currently a byproduct in the farming industry.

At BioComposites Group we want to put money back in the farmer's pocket and to be able to create a product from grower for growers makes sense to us. We use a needle punching technique to intertwine the hemp fibres together to avoid using binder, glues or other synthetic material. MADE LOCAL: We source our fibres from local Canadian farmers to ensure premium quality and biosecurity. All cleaning and manufacturing is done by local Canadian companies. WHY EAT SPROUTS AND MICROGREENS: Aside from being fresh and tasty, these small plants are very high in vitamins and minerals. They are such an easy plant to grow yourself, and with the speed at which these plants mature, you don't have to wait long to enjoy your harvest. There are a large amount of different greens available, and some aren't that green. They can easily be incor...
