A GUIDE TO GROWING NUTRIENT-PACKED GREENS
Recognized as some of the most nutrient-dense greens available, those tiny leaves known as ≈microgreens² are packed with big flavor. And now, with simple instructions, you can grow your own little greens of arugula, basil, purple cabbage, chard, radishes, broccoli, cilantro, and more.
Microgreens teaches the easy process of how to plant and grow the little greens, as well as how to harvest‹which on average is about 2 weeks after sowing. And the small amount of space needed to grow microgreens‹a porch, patio, deck, windowsill, or balcony‹allows them to be easily incorporated into daily meals. The greensˇ nutritional potency make them a must-eat in a healthy diet.
Eaten alone as a salad or added to soups, entrees, sandwiches, burgers, or anything else imaginable‹these tiny greens will enhance everyday food and life.
Eric Franksˇ interest in agriculture began after meeting and apprenticing under farmers Tim and Fabienne Rapsey on their Biodynamic Farm in Kimberton, Pennsylvania.
Jasmine Richardson grew up bi-coastally, spending winters in Pennsylvania and summers in California. Raised by gardeners, she has always loved plants.
Eric and Jasmine currently reside on the Oregon coast, where they own a small microgreens business, True Leaf Microgreens.

I live in New York City and am not lucky enough to have my own backyard. Turns out I have about all the space I need on my fire escape and roof to put together a very productive micro greens garden. I'm also not the greeniest of green thumbs, but found myself following the directions close enough to where my micro greens came out happy, healthy, and delicious. Very happy I did this and I can't wait to share the experience and tastes with my guests!
