Step 1: Fill Cups With Soil
Fill the cup/s with soil and lightly water with a mister. I water with a mister because heavy water pressure can flood or remove the soil.
Step 2: Select Your Seeds
You can use just about and type of vegetable seed. I find leafy greens to be the easiest. The seeds I selected are a basic salad mix. Arugula, radish, kale, and broccoli work just fine as well.
Step 3: Planting Seeds
Generously spread the seeds over the moist soil. Do not burry the seeds. They will grow uncovered.
Step 4: Light
Place seeds under a light. You can also place them on a window seal or counter top that gets a good amount of natural light.
Step 5: Eat Them
After about 5 days, they will be 1-2 inches tall. You can cut them with scissors and add them to your food.
Step 6: Step 1: Find a Mug or Cup
Select a mug or cup you would like to use to grow your microgreens. Make sure you wash and dry it first. the cups can be deep or shallow. I used dessert glasses.
