This year, when you’re thinning out your seedlings, make sure you save all those little babies you pull-out, instead of tossing them to the ground.
Those little seedlings, sometimes called microgreens, baby greens, sprouts or shoots, are packed with tons of nutrients. In fact, studies show that these early stages of growth have up to 40 times more nutrients than a mature plant.
Some of my favorites are: Swiss chard, green lettuce, amaranth, radish, spinach, beets, mustard, broccoli, garbanzo, pea, and bean.
You can use these in smoothies, salads, on sandwiches or even stir fried. Be creative and take advantage of this EXTREME nutrient source!
Have a great growing season!
