Microgreen Podcast Episode 012 Show Notes
Removing the husks of the seeds from Swiss chard and beet microgreens is a job.
A nasty seed hull or husk.
In fact, it often is impossible to do without destroying most of the microgreen leaves.
We tried several ways to remove 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 buried 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 beet and Swiss chard microgreens and not worry about breaking teeth!
