MICROGREENS
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 read the book after a recent trip to the west coast where I tried micro greens for the first time. They were really enjoyable and so I became curious. This was the first piece of written material I came across on the stuff, and I'm glad I did. Not only did it answer all the questions I had about the "what are they?" but then it helped me dive head first into the "now go do it yourself".

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!

If you're interested in Microgreens, check this book out! I've only eaten microgreens in high-end restaurants. Even more, they're very expensive at the market....when you can find them. This book is an excellent tool for growing the greens myself. After reading this book, I feel that even I can do this. The "Sources" section lists organic places that I can order the seeds and soil I'll need. The paper quality in this book is surprisingly exceptional and the photos are gorgeous!

the book is not what I expected to be... it is in great condition, and has great pictures, but it doesn't really have the information I was looking for. the information about growing microgreens is very limited and the rest is about composting, gardening with kids, and stuff that if I wanted I would have bought a different book.

Format: Paperback
We were really excited to see this book. First, it's gorgeous--the full page color photographs look delicious themselves, that's what initially attracted us to the book and the idea of growing our own microgreens. As a busy family on a fixed budget who also cares about eating healthy, natural foods, this book really detailed the possibilities of microgreens. The book made the process so easy, it provided our family with a simple step by step guide of how to grow beautiful, nutritious food at home. It was so easy, in fact, not only have we been sharing any surplus with friends and neighbors, we're thinking about selling them at either the Farmer's Market or to restaurants in town. And the book even tells you how to do that! We highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you want a fresh gourmet salad once a week or you want to start a microgreens business.

I was hoping to find out how to grow microgreens for me in the house over the winter. They do give a lot of info on different greens which is nice but as far as the recipes and many unneeded photos it really missed the mark for me.

This book is truly stunning. It is the best written, most informative book that I have read on the topic of microgreens- growing nutrient packed greens. It is well suited for both the home grower and commercial grower. The recipes are excellent and will make your mouth water. The photography is breathtaking and captures the vitality of this living, nutrient packed food that is easily grown in a small space within a short period of time. The authors are to be congratulated on producing such a superb work that is truly as enjoyable to read as it is practical and informative.

This is a remarkable book. As a grower myself (Fresh Origins), I can confidently recommend it as the best information on the topic available at this time.

Format: Paperback
Microgreens is a must have book for both the organic home gardener and the small scale farmer. The book offers engaging and informative insights into the many benefits of microgreens, including nutritional qualities, ease of cultivation, and rapid harvests. Easy for the home gardener to follow, the book is cleverly structured to cover everything from garden to table (soil building for the advanced grower, and cooking recipes for the novice wholesome foods advocate). Most importantly, it doesn't offer suggestions or instructions that require expensive equipment or a background in agriculture.

I admittedly knew very little on the topic prior to reading the book, and I have already germinated a low-cost microgreens garden on my back porch. This is cutting-edge, compact, sustainable, and easy to produce agriculture; I would suggest it to anyone interested in producing their own quick, easy, and nutritious food.
