Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
What's small, able to be grown on your windowsill and is bursting with flavour and goodness? Microgreens, the new superfood that everyone can grow! Microgreens - the tiny seedlings of herbs and vegetables - are today's hottest gourmet garnish, offering a multitude of colours, textures and distinct flavours, ranging from spicy, mild and subtle to hot or nutty. Larger than sprouts and smaller than baby salad greens, microgreens are fantastic for those with limited garden space as they are great to grow in containers on a terrace or windowsill. Immediate and practical, most varieties are ready in a week or so, and you can grow them in winter. As a bonus, as well as tasting great, nutritionally microgreens pack a powerful punch; they have been found to contain higher levels of concentrated active compounds than mature plants or seeds. This book describes how to successfully grow your own microgreens, with detailed information on 25 popular varieties, plus recipes.
