Our microgreen kits are great sources of live food and we have always reused our spent media, but today we want to take a closer look at how our simple microgreen growing kit can become an abundant garden. Our growing media is made of coconut coir and has some worm castings in it. When you mix this in with potting soil or your garden, it creates a rich source of organics. Once you harvest your microgreens you will notice a wonderful root mass that the microgreens left behind, it appears to be a mat of roots and soil. Take a look at these shots ...
The first picture is of my tray that I have placed used trays to reuse in our garden. It has been rainy lately and I went out and lo and behold, we have quite a few new starts and nice baby greens that can be harvested again and used in salads or garnish. The middle picture is one by Lisa who has taken the harvested trays and placed them in her container garden. Notice how the rain brought out the starts again from our trays. These starts grow into the full vegetables as evidenced by the young kale that we now have. We have also harvested a large radish and chard.
Our kits are great and the microgreens are wonderful, but the journey need not stop with the harvest. Baby Greens, Organic Vegetables, Organic Soil Ammendment ... Oh My !!!
