Grow Microgreens in doors: press the seeds in to the soilMicrogreen Seeds
Mesclun seed mixes
are a good choice for microgreens: Varieties like Paris Market Mix and Asian Baby Leaf Mix from Renee's Garden (reneesgarden.com) contain a blend of greens selected because they tend to sprout at the same time.
