All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.
I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.
These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Ruby Red Swiss Chard Microgreens.
I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.
Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.
You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.
