Yes, yes. Live seed boxes for windowsill crops. We farm in Suffolk, where the appetite for microgreens isn’t huge, we’re still getting used to humous. To Farm them well you need perfect conditons (like a indoor farm) and shops that want a small amount but every few days. So were taking it back a step, making the growing a joint effort and sending seeds just as they to move. Sounds like cop out and not suggesting we do this with pigs but microgreens are something that just grow and need little space. Up against the alternative, a live crop will last longer, save a penny and keep Greta on your side (we’re working on the plastic trays)

THERE’S A LOT OUT THERE, WE DON’T DO THEM ALL

The boxes switch up regularly, you don’t know what’s coming, sometimes we don’t

SEE THE GREENS

Microgreen grow box

IT’S ALL THERE

 

Seeds are washed, primed, sown and covered with enough to grow them to the end. So we’ve done a bit, first they’ll need a bit more dark from you (keep them covered), then light and the odd bit of water. Ready in a few weeks, you crop them at their first or second leaf stage.

Living Microgreens

SHORT LIVED – NOT COMPULSORY

 

It doesn’t have to end there, with a bit of care the seedlings could be repotted if the GYO is taking hold
