You can grow edible, delicious, vibrantly beautiful, and nutritious microgreens all year round indoors. Add color, texture, and flavor to salads, sandwiches, tacos, and other recipes.
Big on nutrition and flavor, microgreens can be grown easily in a small space at home. All you need is a little sun or a grow light, a shallow container, a little potting soil, and the right seeds. The library has plenty of resources to get you started, including a Grow a Microgreen Garden class in England Run Branch’s MakerLab on Saturday, January 13, 1:00-2:00.
This is the time of year when delicious fruits and vegetables fill the homegrown gardens and bins at farmers' markets. An abundance of heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn and sweeter peaches make August the right time to practice the very rewarding work of preserving.
