Grow your own: Microgreens5 min read 22 Oct 2015, 03:03 PM IST
They look stunning, have a sharp, concentrated flavour, and are packed with healthy nutrients. And they are easy to grow, easy to use. Start today
The season is changing. There is a slight nip in the air, dew on the grass and a slant to the morning light. A flock of tiny White Eye’s are foraging in the custard apple tree next to the lily pond as I sit in the porch with a mug of steaming hot mint and lemongrass chai. It is about that time of the year when I start thinking about and planning my winter kitchen garden. After a bountiful yield last winter, I am making grander plans with more exotics this time as well as increasing trays for microgreens—those succulent, slender but flavourful little overgrown sprouts of sorts which one can harvest within days of seed germination, often as less as 5 for certain vegetables. I love the wonderful, peppery bite they have.
