Micro greens & Indoor Gardening on the Cowboy Baby Homestead


I’m actually still searching for the perfect book for this project. This one looks good!

Anyway, I bought ‘fresh’ peas at a big box store to throw in a salad. I got them home and they were not fit for human consumption. Thankfully, they were fit for chicken consumption. So then I was like, “Oookay, time to start my indoor garden.”

If you look on YouTube, you’ll see there’s many ways to do it. Like anything else, adapt these methods to suit your own situation. In my climate, I’m going to need GrowLights, for example. Nevertheless, this method by Roots & Refuge is pure genius, so I’ll probably adapt something like this- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7IXn2t8GLh0

Do check out her other videos too, you’ll be glad you did.

As a basic tutorial on Microgreens, check out this video by GrowVeg- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCMzrKIsQEE

If she can do it, seriously, we’ve got no excuse.

We can sit around and whine about not having fresh veggies all winter, but that’s a waste of time and energy. Let’s get off our backsides and get this done.

I’ll report back on how mine’s growing in a few weeks.

Be Brave, Be Kind.
