If you’re ready to try indoor salad gardening, this is the book for you. It tells you all you need to know about growing microgreens at home indoors for fresh salads or smoothies year round.
Meet The Author
The author, Peter Burke, is a regular working guy like you and me who doesn’t have a lot of extra time on his hands. He also didn’t want to invest a lot of money into fancy growing light setups. Instead, he used what he had on hand and was able to figure out a simple method of growing greens with nothing more than a container, some soil, a window spot and of course some seeds.
What Are Microgreens?
If you’re looking for a tried and true, easy to manage approach to growing sprouts and microgreens, this is the book for you. Microgreens are nutrient dense foods that not only add a lot of vitamins and minerals to your diet, they also have the added advantage of growing quickly.
A full head of lettuce takes quite a pretty long time to grow to maturity. These microgreens on the other hand are ready to harvest just a few days after the first leaves appear. Before you know it, you’re ready to grow your next batch.
Microgreens not only pack a punch nutrition-wise, they are also full of flavor, making them the perfect addition to all sorts of dishes. You don’t need as much volume to get the same amount of flavor and nutrition. Not only does this save calories, it also saves a lot of counter space when it comes to growing these delicious little plants.
How Much Greens Can You Get with Indoor Salad Gardening ?
Between the little space they require and how quickly these little plants grow, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how much green food you can produce. Burke reports that he’s able to grow up to six pounds of greens per day – that’s crazy.
Is Indoor Salad Gardening Really Worth My Time?
Just think how much you’ll save at the grocery store when you’re able to grow much of the vegetable and greens your family needs at home – on your kitchen window sills. Not to mention the fact that you don’t have to head to the store every few days to pick up fresh produce. Just grab some scissors and cut what you need for lunch or dinner. One more thing, you control keeping your greens organic.
Grab a copy of Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening. With the simple step-by-step directions outlined in the book, you’ll be up and running with your very own window boxes full of budding salad greens in no time.
