Over the past month I’ve been trying out my own way of microgreens, some a success and others not.

Dried Marrowfat Peas… Soak them overnight then rinse and just keep them damp, within a few days they sprout, you can then pile them into compost and cover. Here is my first trial pot. Not bad and they taste great.

Cress – put about 1cm of compost in a tray, sprinkle lots of cress seeds, flatten them in then spray the water. You can cover with something for two days, they will look yellow, then leave them in daylight. Great taste, much hotter than shop cress. More peas on the go at the front!
