Plant babies, that is!
I love this time of year. Not the mud and dirt and gravelly lawns, mind you. But I do love the hope that spring brings for the growing season ahead. Many of us are nurturing seedlings in our homes as we speak, dreaming of the warmer days filled with gardening to come.
Luckily, at Eden Greens, we don't have to wait for the weather to warm up to grow nutritious food. We've been developing a facility that can handle growing hundreds of trays of micros indoors, no matter what the weather.
Sounds pretty cool, right? But, what exactly are micro greens? And what are we supposed to do with them? Micro greens are quite literally baby plants. They are similar to sprouts, and some may get the two confused. The difference is sprouts are grown in water, and micro greens are grown in soil. This causes micro greens to have an incredibly low chance of any bacterial issues (i.e. e coli), unlike their sprout cousins.
Being grown in soil also causes micro greens to be super-packed with nutrients. In fact, we've been cultivating our own special organic blend of soil to create what we feel will be the perfect growing conditions for top quality micros.
So. What do we do with this miraculous food, you ask. Have you ever smelled a plant seedling? Well, if you give a seedling a tiny rub, you may be surprised to discover that it smells just like the full grown plant! The cool part is, it usually has a similar taste profile, as well.
Imagine a delicious chilli or soup with some spicy mustard or radish greens on top. Or a delicious omelette with some peppery arugula or salad with sweet pea shoots. You can add punches of flavour with a huge nutritional benefit to your every day meals.
The only thing holding you back is your own imagination!
So, bring on the babies!
Plants, that is.
