This growing season, Ive incorporated a new addition to the apothecary.

A friend of mine in Palo Alto fondly spoke about her greens and avidly sends me her recipes and just fresh outta the kitchen photos of her brunches and dinners utilizing a fast and flavorful array of micro greens.

Upon further research, the term implies a small sprout. So basically, take any seeds you have and grow the yummy edibles from 1-3 inches, harvest and enjoy before the second set of leaves develop, but if it does, enjoy your new baby plant you’ve just germinated from seed! ūü§©

In this current mix I have:

  1. a mix of basis
  2. umami asian blend: mustards, cabbages, bakchoi, pakchoi,
  3. sunflowers
  4. a wild mix: bulls blood beet, cabbages, kohlrabi, swiss chards

It takes just a few short days starting from seed to sprout, but once you get it going, a very useful and unique harvest to add to your self sustaining round of spices and herbs.

Enjoy your new edible garden, AJ

Being quarantined brings out the best in me. I am absolutely going coconuts over my edible, ornamental and medicinal garden. Spending much needed time to be in nature and get my hands dirty. I realize after months of spending majority of my waking hours in the corporate retail jungle, its a very enriching to break the survival habits and grind to command and commit to something else that my heart desires.

It’s important to me to transfer and exchange this pent up energy and I find that my various array of plants can take just that.

My current features are as follows.

A full moon in libra harvest of micro greens, ranging from basil, dill, fennel and wild sprouts.

Of course I have a Pinterest board full of recipes I am going to teach myself on how to create being that we have time, starting tomorrow!

Green with envy? Then come join me! AJ
