Countertop gardening for everyone!
Miss Ashley, your posts are always spot on! This post on growing sprouts is the most detailed I have ever found. Growing/eating/preserving food comes with risks and I know I can trust the info you share. Just wanted to say thank you.
I have not—sounds like a good book to add to my library.
I do have Sandor Katz’s book wild fermentation.
Just moved back to the family home with 5 acres. Still learning about the land.
When you grow micro greens and harvest the top half of the plants - will they regrow, or are they gone?
Hi Ashley....absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing! I do use micro greens and love them....thanks for the reminder! Have a wonderful week...thanks again, hugs, Barbara from Sydney in Oz xoxoxo
This sounds so exciting. I have a patch of turnips going to seed. Do they make good sprouts and micro greens? Thanks for all your info. Carol S
Where did you get those cool sprouting lids? Do they work well, and can you use a quart mason jar?

Thanks for the info on micro greens. I find harvesting them is not so easy. Do you have any tips to make it easier to snip them?
I’m going to harvest some of my garlic mustard and ferment it. I figure it should do well as it’s a member of the cabbage family.
Lemon balm and oregano are a few things growing nicely in the yard now. I decided to make tea from them and am happy I did. I tried out the lemon balm first. It was very tasty and refreshing with a couple dabs of local honey that was gifted to me. I followed up with the oregano and honey. This was a little earthier but also very tasty and refreshing. I figure this is a good way to keep the lemon balm in check. I will experiment by combining them and throwing in some curly mint as well. Cheers.
I love it! We are on the same page. We grow wheat grass which we consume as a blender drink every morning. Easy to grow, excellent for your health. The spent grass we give to the chickens and they LOVE it!
