– But for larger grains and beans, like garbanzos, rice, wheatgrass, don’t buy a strainer screen. We went to the hardware store and bought $5 worth of screen (by the foot), cut out circles and fit them in our mason jar lids. I still have tons of screen left for future use. Cheap and works really well!
One of the many checks we do around here at McCardell Farms is the ph levels of our soil and water. We want our precious microgreens to thrive in the right material, and when it comes to ph levels, they love around 6.0.
It might sound very science-y but it’s really easy – just mix, shake and compare colors to see whether your plants are going to say “ahhhh” or say “yikes!”
The McCardell Family have added Tower Gardens to their line of products for sale from their farm. After using Tower Gardens for over four years, we decided our passion for these incredible products is worth talking to the world about!
We own four Tower Gardens and we’ve been enjoying eating lettuce, kale, tomatoes and herbs daily. My children love picking our dinner salad! Features of the systems include…
Tower Gardens are perfect for households that don’t have time or space for traditional soil gardening. Busy people with small back yards love Tower Gardens because they’re easy to maintain, provide lots of produce, and take up space UPWARD instead of ACROSS property.
Tower Gardens use as much as 90% less water than traditional soil gardening, they don’t require pesticides, and they’re weed-free. Also, the maintenance on our towers is so low.
This looks good – fried rice with beans and seitan I made recently…
But the truth is, after I took that photo I added more greens. Sometimes just like we need more cowbells, MORE MICROGREENS are really what’s on my menu. I really can’t get enough of them! (A little avocado didn’t hurt, either!)
