Planting and Pleasures – Microgreens Part III

Oh My! The Microgreens are a bit ragged in appearance…what happened to my lush crop? I’m afraid to say I have already eaten most of the young greens. I pop the tops off the pea sprouts and eat them like candy. This is reminiscent of the peas I grow outdoors in the Spring. They never seem to arrive on my kitchen table as a side dish. Warm afternoons usually find me standing in the midst of the pea patch eating the fresh peas out of the pods. Yum! In truth, the microgreens are a complete success. I enjoy growing them, and most of all eating them. The best use so far was garnishing my turkey and swiss cheese sandwich with a row of them. Oh Happy Day!

The kitchen sink variety is also thriving and perhaps today I will start grazing on them too. Moo!

  1. Kathy,
    What are micro-greens ?
    I am so happy to read of your gladness in simple pleasures.
    When I was little, I used to read books by the British author Enid Blyton- especially her Famous Five series- in them, the children used to love eating peas off the pod,straight from the plants.

    1. I agree with Enid Blyton, I love peas off the pod too. They taste almost like candy they are so sweet. Microgreens are small plants, grown to be eaten when they have only a set or two of leaves. They are supposed to be very nutritious when they are so young.

        1. Not that I can recall…but I will have to keep my eyes open when I am in Vintage Book Stores or at yard sales…maybe it is a free Kindle or Library download. Often older books can be found that way. Hmmmm….I feel a blog post coming on Susie! Have a happy day.
