OK ... we delivered our first large batch of live trays yesterday to Kula Fields, they are going to try the live microgreens in their baskets of fresh produce and sell the kits through their stores. The live microgreens will add a new dimension to the produce they deliver.
The first picture is a closeup through the cover of the actual arugula crop in our live trays. Pic 2 is the order ready for pickup ... arugula grows quickly in our warm climate (Kahului, HI) and our crop was ready to deliver in 5 days from seed to live tray. The last pic is a shot of our racks that we used to grow the trays ... it took four racks and the table to complete our growing area. This is called rapid escalation to scale ... woo hooo !!!
We have a large order of our live trays to deliver this week, it is a great opportunity to illustrate how our process can work at scale. These are photos of part of the order to be delivered Tuesday. First photo is the finished tray that we will deliver on Tuesday. Next is a spread of trays that was taken last night around 8pm. The last photo is a picture of the same set of trays this morning around 11am that had morning sun today. That first impact of sunlight on these Arugula Microgreens is truly dramatic ....
We have now listed in our store our Brand New DIY Hydroponic Kale Microgreen Kits. These Kits were designed from the bottom up to be earth friendly, clean, sustainable, and healthy. 3 full crops of Organic, Non GMO Kale microgreens will be yours in 7-10 days from seed to eat ...
This will be the first in our new lineup of kits bringing you the best and simplest way to provide fresh (doesn't get any fresher than LIVE !!!) and nutritious microgreens for you !!!
Our first shipment of Eco Products containers will hopefully be here this week. This is a photo of what is in our new hydroponic microgreen kits. Our first offerings will include Arugula, Kale and Kohlrabi. We are testing new seeds and combinations for ease of growth and consistent crops. The beauty of this kit is that it includes in the recycled plastic containers micro mats that are USDA certified organic and Non GMO seeds to create a fresh crop of microgreens.
The kits will include 3 mats and 3 packets of seed to produce 3 crops as pictured. We will announce via this blog when kits are ready to ship ... watch for our announcement coming very soon ...
