Mesmerizing Microgreens!

Microgreens are a type of lettuce or herb that are harvested young. These refreshing greens can add a lot of flavor and nutrients to your meals. While there is a wide variety of microgreens, they all provide a great source of antioxidants and phytochemicals, which can help prevent chronic disease and certain types of cancers. Another great benefit of microgreens is that they are one of the easiest types of produce to grow yourself! All you will need are your seeds, container with potting soil, and a sunny spot for the microgreens to grow. Did you know that the greenhouse on The Reservation grows microgreens? These tiny nutrient powerhouses may be a new and upcoming addition to our daily meals!
