    Love this site and the micro green recipes. Keep em coming. Not only good for your health but visually appealing...I have 5 trays now ready to pick.. fenugreek, daikon radish, mixed salad greens, mustard. I grow in trays on my S facing inside porch all winter. I start them on the radiator for 2-3 days.then move trays to much cooler porch encased in unzipped food storage bags. Perfect outcome.
