Microgreen Harvest 12/28/10

pea microgreens

spinach and radish microgreens

shoot... can't remember what I planted in the bottom planter!

I bought this indoor green house a few years ago.  It's perfect for getting my seeds started... and growing my microgreens!

pea microgreens
I read in a gardening magazine a few months ago about growing microgreens.  And thought... ya... I can do that!

So I grabbed a couple long planters and some left over seeds.  I sprinkled the seeds thickly over the soil then lightly covered with soil.  Placed the 2 long planters in my indoor greenhouse near a south facing window.  Watered every so often... well, really I just misted...

It's been a few weeks.  I've so enjoyed watching the seeds sprout and grow their first little leaves!

Today the pea sprouts were a good 3 or 4 inches tall... so I decided that it was time to harvest!!!

I plan on using my microgreens in salads, on sandwiches, and in my green smoothies!

Today those tender, fragrant, tasty pea microgreens went into my fruity green smoothie!


  1. How wonderful! AND no bugs :) I have a few greens growing under lights right now too.

  2. I want to try peas. I adore the taste and it would be great in Jan and Feb when everything is so white and I'm dying for green.

  3. Hi GrafixMuse! LOL... no grasshoppers... even in the hoop house!

    It's so easy Daphne... and the flavor is really intense!

  4. Appetizing! I like that indoor greenhouse. Where did you get that from?

  5. Hi Veggie PAK, I got that indoor greenhouse from a store here in northern Wyoming called Pamida. Here it is on amazon:

  6.  Peas are the one microgreen crop that can be re-grown for a second cutting. Cut the first crop leaving a shoot at the base of the plant to re-grow. Peas taste like newly harvested spring peas. Pea Shoots are a nutritious microgreen with high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A. They also have...
    • 7 times more vitamin C than blueberries
    • 8 times more folic acid than bean sprouts
    • 4 times more vitamin A than tomatoes
