Our tiny windowsill micro greens garden – a supply of homegrown greens all year, so much value (so full of nutrients and sooo delicious!) in the tiniest space with such a small amount of input.
We have a tray on the utility room windowsill to catch any water and within that we re-use old shallow plastic raspberry containers, and some mushroom containers (cut down) with a few holes in the bottom for drainage.
They only need a really small amount of compost, the seed is sown thickly on top, watered and covered for a day (stack them or I use a dark towel), then left on a sunny windowsill and within a week or 2 you can harvest the most tasty, super nutritious greens!
I’ll post a step by step with photos or a video soon.
They are absolutely delicious on pasta, salads, pizza, sandwiches (basically anything!). Rocket microgreens are my absolutely favourite, but we also grow kale, radish, broccoli and cabbage – our seeds were from Premier Seeds Direct (suuuper cheap – 99p delivered for most packs plus discounts for more).
