Planting Radish Microgreens

Post by actinglikeabanker on Sun Mar 18, 2018 11:56 am

Microgreens are an easy to grow indoors at home food source. They are packed full of nutrition and offer a short seed to harvest growing time.

Depending on your environment heat/light Radish microgreens can be sowed, grown and harvested within about 13 days.

Step one,

Get a suitable tray, I use the 'Garland Full Size Standard Seed Trays, 38cm, green, with holes'. It is not a strict requirement to have holes I just use them with holes as I chose to bottom water.



Step two,

Fill the tray with approx 1 inch of sieved soil see here for how I sieve the soil I use : http://goodf.forumotion.com/t1896-planting-onions-radish-tomatoes . It is not a strict requirement to use soil and there are many alternatives to soil that can be used.





Step three,

Get your choice of seeds, the seeds I am using here were purchased last season and cost pennies, I would not recommend purchasing these seeds in season for the purpose of growing microgreens as it will significantly increase the cost, there are many bulk seeds suppliers available online so it is worth spending and hour or two researching these and finding a more cost effective source.



Step four,

Apply your seeds evenly. For the two trays planted for this example I have used 3 packets of seed in the left tray and 4 packets in the right tray (as mentioned this would be very costly if using packet brought seeds unless you can source them cheap at the end of season).






Step five,

Give the seeds a good soak, preferably using rain harvested water. If this is not an option then use tap water but let it vent off the chemicals that are added for 12 hours before applying.



Step six,

Stack the trays and add an extra tray on top. In the top tray add a weight, this weight helps the seeds to get a good rooting when they sprout, I have used those ice blocks (not frozen) in this example which I picked up a couple of years ago for about 5 pence each, anything will do though such as a brick. When they sprout they will have no trouble in lifting the weight up.

For the first 4/5 days of sprouting they require no light so they can be stored anywhere, just keep in mind temperature as the colder it is the longer it will take them to sprout. After 4/5 days they will push themselves up and you will visibly see the trays lifted. At this point you can split the stack and place them under your lighting of choice, I use 4/5 foot 55k LED's for sprouting but pretty much any light/windowsill you have available will do.



Step seven,

Harvest them as required. If you chose to harvest a full sized tray like used in the example then providing you keep them chilled in the fridge they should last for around one week. I like to cut them and add them to meals/salads as and when required. As can be seen in the following picture there actually didn't turn out to be that much density difference between using 3 or four packets of seed.

Radishes are another overlooked food as the leaves can also be eaten and are great in a mixed leaf salad.

seed pods too ! i wonder how well you could grow from seed to seed under lights, failing that do a patch outdoors just for your seed.

I prefer to keep the seeds for next years crop instead of eating them, but its personal preference again.

Agreed assassin. they are a super quick crop also, about 5/6 weeks to harvest under the right conditions. Number one crop for a zombie apocalypse apparently Laughing.

Thanks Lopsum, I have never let them go to seed before but they look tasty yum, yum will definitely be giving that a go.

Let them go to seed and harvest next years seeds ALAB, pickle some as they are nice pickled, add a little olive oil to the pickling mixture to calm the heat down a little and these are also very nice.
