Growing on the High Plains: Managaing Microgreens

The weather is cooling, so why not take the gardening indoors? Today's installment covers the basics of starting your own plot of microgreens from the comfort of your own home!

This time of year can be challenging for High Plains gardeners, as we bid our summer plots farewell to welcome the incoming Fall weather. Today's Growing on the High Plains shares about a new endeavor for me: growing a mini-farm of countertop microgreens. It'll keep the greens coming while the air turns chilly. Why not try it yourself?

Years ago Skip Mancini left the rocky coast of Northern California to return to her roots in the heartland. Her San Francisco friends, concerned over her decision to live in a desolate flatland best known for a Hollywood tornado, were afraid she would wither and die on the vine. With pioneer spirit, Skip planted a garden. She began to learn about growing not only flowers and vegetables, but hearts and minds. If you agree that the prairie is a special place, we think you'll enjoy her weekly sojourns into Growing on the High Plains.
