Removing Swiss Chard and Beet Seed Husks Without Soaking the Seeds First
Microgreen Podcast Episode 012 Show Notes
Removing the husks of the seeds from Swiss chard and beet microgreens is a job.
In fact, it often is impossible to do without destroying most of the microgreen leaves.
We tried several different ways of removing the seed husks as the plants grew.
However, the results were no different than sowing seeds and letting them grow.
Burying the Seeds
Finally, we bury the seeds like nature intended under our soil mix, and believe it or not, almost all of the husks came off the microgreens!
Both for Beets
And then for Swiss chard varieties.
Now we can enjoy both beet and Swiss chard microgreens and not worry about breaking teeth!
