Our new Pea Micro Farm kits are going to be available by the end of the month in our store. We are testing multiple crops and so far are completely blown away by the incredible visuals and taste. Pea shoots are a staple in Europe and Asia and our new farm will grow an impressive crop in 6-12 days from seed to harvest. Peas require pre soaking to insure good germination. Our blog post last week showed the peas a few days earlier while you can see this picture of what we harvested today.
We got a larger container of the sprouts from our tray and the sizes ranged from 3" - 6" with tendrils just starting to show on some of the taller shoots. The insets show the farm and a tray we filled with the harvest. The bottom picture shows the mat of root mass that is left, really incredible stuff. The greens are tender and sweet ... what a great crop of super nutrition. Marc Jaoude of Markito Nutrition gives a good rundown in a recent article here. Watch for our line of Pea Farms to come before the holidays!
