Here are the links discussed in Episode 35 of the Microgreens Podcast. We discussed how Home Microgreens got started.
A section in the following article contains the story of why I started Home Microgreens.
Below are links to the new Home Microgreens Seed Density Course that contains four video lessons, links to peer-reviewed articles on what parts of plants contain the most nutrition, two pdf worksheets so you can record your favorite microgreen trays and how much seed to use in them.
Plus, the two microgreen seed density calculators. One that gives you how much mass or weight of seed to use. The second gives you how much volume of seed to use, such as teaspoons, tablespoons, or quarter cups, depending on the microgreen variety.

There are 40+ microgreen varieties in the calculator. I’ll continue to increase the number as I carry new varieties or calculate seeding densities for those I haven’t determined.
