We last blogged a week ago of our new kits and have them available in our online store and etsy store. It is now a week later and I just had to show you our newest kit, chinese parsley microgreens. We are super excited with this new offering as the benefits of consuming parsley all fit in with our idea of what wellness should be.
The picture above shows our kit after 3 weeks of growth and I have circled the first true leaves that appeared. They have the shape of what you picture parsley should look like. This great looking microgreen has incredible flavor while being recognized as one the 7 most potent disease fighting herbs.
Three weeks is a relatively short time to grow out these great new microgreens. Check out our new listings now.
To round out our new offerings we are going to picture all five of them in one post. When we started putting together kits and crops we concentrated on seeds that would produce microgreens in approximately 7-10 days. We tried several of these crops earlier and just didn't let them grow long enough. So we decided to extend the growing time to see what would happen. Pictured here to the left is our garlic chives. These microgreens have got the most intense aroma of any of our microgreens. Flavor to match as one tender and wispy stalk will just blow your taste buds away. Grow them out for 3 weeks and top on anything you want to give a kick to ...
Enter our new kits designed to grow for 2-4 weeks. The pictures are of the crops at 2 weeks, but you can see from the pictures, these plants are nowhere near reaching the true leaf stage.
Great looking, great tasting, full of nutrition and fun to grow. These new kits will be in our store by this weekend! Chinese Parsley, Beets, Swiss Chard and Purple Basil. Your patience will be amply rewarded.
We are introducing today some new kits that take a bit longer to grow out but provide some new and wonderful crops of microgreens. Our new kits feature some beets and basil. These new kits will feature crops that take about twice as long to grow so expect growing times approaching 2 weeks or longer. Our first featured kits will be our early wonder beets and dark opal (purple) basil. These two are spectacular looking and provide a wonderful taste. The beets are beautifully colored with bright red stems and vivid green delicate leaves. The basil is incredibly flavorful with wonderfully diverse coloring from green to deep purple in a compact but tasty microgreen.
Watch for more announcements as we have some other basils, swiss chard and a REALLY fragrant garlic chive that is an incredibly delicate plant. The first two kits will be available today with more being released in coming weeks. Later we will incorporate multiple crops in our popular three packs.
We have been using all of our tools and products to get to a better state. As we grow older, it is becoming increasingly evident that if we can control what we put into our bodies, we can help our bodies do what they are supposed to. When we started microgreenfarm.co and urbafresh foods we took on supplying live, fresh foods for our consumption. We also found our sea solids and noted that by making sure we had a ready supply of minerals and trace elements so our body was better able to cope with some of the imbalances of living and aging.
We have taken all of these items and combined them in a new website that attempts to tie this all together. We label our site Seeking Balance and incorporate there all the elements so far we have encountered and that have made a difference for us. We have now produced some limited quantities of seasoned sea solids that will be available for purchase later this week. These salts are all based on the gold standard of sea salts that contains 90 trace minerals and elements. Watch for another blog entry announcing the release for sale the complete line of salts in perfect gift sizes ... give the gift of balance while enhancing the taste of any food or dish.
