I recently read about micro greens and it sounds great, especially since I live in a rather rural area away from stores. This means fresh vegs, especially salad greens, in the winter are a treat. I've grown sprouts and, in fact, just started a few the other day, but I have never tried the micro greens so I have a few questions...
1. Do you need to use organic soil or can I just use potting soil I have on hand?
2. Have you found a reputable place to purchase seeds? If so, where? I probably need to purchase on line although there is a health food store about an hour from us and they may have some seeds. I know I can get sprout seeds there.
3. I have a can of Chia seeds we purchased to use for sprinkling on salads, cereal, etc. but not for the purpose of growing. Has anyone ever tried growing these? I called company and they said they didn't know if they would grow or not.
I have read you can eat roots and all on microgreens. Do you agree?
Any tips or thoughts on this topic would be appreciated. I'm sure others will find it interesting, too, especially if they haven't heard of microgreens. Thank you!
