Now is a great time to get in the mood for spring by growing Microgreens
By Sherry Stover VCE Southside Master Gardener Let’s get growing Microgreens in 17 Days or less. Microgreens are immature versions of vegetable and herb seeds. Winter is the perfect time for sowing seeds you can eat. The garden has been put to bed for the year and unless you have a greenhouse or other comparable set-up, there's not a lot being grown and harvested in the backyard right now. Microgreens have four to six times more concentration of nutrients than bigger/adult size plants, they offer more of nutrients like beta carotene, vitamins A, B, C, E and K plus antioxidants.
