But since I can never actually concentrate hard enough to change the weather I’ve decided to grow more micro greens. I first wrote about these delicious, healthy little greens back in May when everyone was thinking about gardening but you can grow them indoors all year!

Left to grow, they’ll turn into the full size, mature leafy greens you already know. But you may be eating micro greens without knowing it already. Many restaurants are using them and even commercially packaged salad mixes often have micro greens tucked in. And they’re healthy!
