While putting together the MicrogreenFarm business I can't tell you how many hours I spent poring over web sites, hardware & garden stores, hydroponic stores and food distributors. The journey led to endless experiments and trials to find the best mix of components to grow the finest microgreens. Our last blog highlighted the behavior of the plants as they went through their growth phases and harvested our wonderful crops.
In order to produce the finest microgreens we had to find a mix of what to grow in and the combination of nutrients to ensure the best colors, nutrient content, and taste in our crops. We have found that the addition of worm sea solids to our base media was the best after extensive trial and error. So we had seeds, growing media, nutrients to create our kits.
Further thought and work went into addressing the spacing and application of our seeds. Feedback from our great customers and many fails and successes has led us to our new product. It became obvious that this new product was an incredibly versatile tool to enable you to grow microgreens, baby greens or even seed your containers or gardens for the spring.
Pictured here is a test of our product using an herb "shaker" to make the application of our seed simple and even. The seeds are mixed in dry media and applied over any container. The container pictured has our hydroponic kit mat spread on the bottom. We simply applied an even layer of mix on top of the mat. No more mixing of nutrients or needing specialized growing materials. This seeding product will allow you to control seed density and application simply and effectively. Our last blog in this series will unveil our new product for sale ....
