Micro Greens

Do you ever feel bad about pulling out all of those seedlings from your early crops? I do. I call it environmental guilt. I don’t have critters that will eat them so they generally go to waste.

I noticed how cute the radishes were and the arugula was looking at me, too! Fancy restaurants grow their own and charge mega bucks for a micro-salad. I may have found a calling.

I thought that the arugula and radishes would be tasty on our mashed potatoes for dinner. But, boy were they dirty! I soaked them and rinsed three times.

The radishes were quite spicy! It was a nice surprise biting into them with the green onions and sour cream on the mashed potatoes.

Try it next time! I would also suggest adding them to pasta or sauteed with chicken and a nice garlic sauce.

So, be like the fancy restaurants…use those seedlings in something that needs a little kick. Or make an mega buck micro-salad for absolutely nothing.

    I have a terrible problem thinning the vegetables. It just feels like waste. Until I got 1 radish out of the entire row last year because they were too crowded. Now those thinned veggies have a purpose – micro salad. Thank you for this reminder!

    I made a radish greens frittata just a couple weeks ago! It was awesome…although it didn’t photograph as well for my blog as I had hoped.

    What a great idea! Would never have guessed that radish greens were edible, but really, why not?

    Thanks!

    There’s another way around having to thin veggies – or any plant for that matter. It’s to plant where you want the plant to grow and skip tossing the rest of the seeds into the ground. Even though the packet says to plant xxx inches apart and then THIN. HELLO, they’re in business to make money selling seeds. And what better way to sell seeds than to have you over plant and then thin throw away the ripped up plants?

    So only plant the number of plants you want, where you want them to end up and then put the rest of the seeds (in the packet) into a plastic bag and put in veggie crisper (bottom of fridge) and use them next year. And the year after, if you have left-over seeds. Any plant that doesn’t come up, simply replant in that one spot. It will only be a week or two behind it’s brothers and sisters.
