The last snow seems to have finally melted and the first warm sunny days provide the long-awaited vitamin D boost. For many people, it's time to go out into the garden, and the little microgreens are somewhat forgotten over the summer. In this newsletter, we'll tell you why exactly that doesn't have to be the case and give you some great tips for using them in the warmer months! 🌱
Bridging the waiting time
Yes, the gardening season is really getting started. But: it is still a few weeks until the first harvest . Especially when spring temperatures are still milder, growing microgreens and sprouts is still possible without any problems and is an excellent way to bridgethe time until the first garden harvest.
Play it safe
As we all know, the weather is becoming increasingly unpredictable, and we notice this in the garden too. Whether it's the constant need to carry watering cans during long dry spells or the garden being devastated by the next storm - a bountiful harvest is never quite certain. Microgreens in particular are therefore a perfect harvest backup, even in summer! They need much less water than conventional vegetables and are weatherproof , both on the windowsill and in the greenhouse in a protected environment . Fresh and constant harvest? Guaranteed!
Integrate into the garden
Especially such rather vigorous seedlings can withstand normal weather conditions without any problems. However, you should cover them with foil during the germination process. Also, always make sure to give them enough water!
Bring to the next event
Invited to a barbecue or spring brunch in a week's time, but no idea what you can contribute ? Microgreens are a real eye-catcher on any buffet table, especially in the Grow-Grow Nuts with their respective variety flags. Grown in just a few days, they are guaranteed to cause a stir as an original souvenir 😉
As you can see, there are all sorts of good reasons not to neglect growing your own superfoods even when the sun is warm enough!
