My favorite vegetables are the smaller, green ones such as broccoli and carrots. I have also discovered microgreens and they are absolutely delicious. The first time I planted a microgreen garden I made a huge mess. All that soil had been lost and all of my carrots were overripe.
It took about three weeks for the plants to recover. Since then I have used two varieties of Microgreen 1020 Trays and they are doing great. The vegetables stay green all year round and they are beautiful as well. If you grow them often then you should consider growing microgreens and trays.
The tray has holes in it that allow for easy watering and drainage. If you are using a tray then the trays will hold the microgreens at a constant moisture level so they don’t dry out. The average weight of the microgreens is about one pound, so the trays can support over one pound of plant weight.
The shallow microgreen 1020 trays come with holes at the bottom. This is where the seed tray can be put in. Place your seeds in the hole and cover with the clear poly bag. Do not use dirt or newspaper on the bottom of the tray. You will notice after you plant your first batch of microgreens that they start to form a root system and settle down.
This is called a root ball if you have never seen one before. Microgreen growing trays make it easier for the seed to get into the hole and to stay there. A bootstrap farmer will only have four pounds of microgreen inside of the bootstrap farmer. That is still three pounds less than the average growing trays.
What makes the bootstrap farmer much lower than the average growing trays is that it is made of aluminum. This material is extremely lightweight and durable. The weight of the trays is low enough that you can carry them around without having to lug a heavy frame backpack along with it. They can also be used indoors, but they cannot support more than four pounds of plant weight at a time.
Microgreen planting trays are available in many different shapes, colors, and sizes. Each one has its own particular look and feel to them. There are clear covers that are easy to see through even with partial light. There are others that are frosted so that even during the coldest part of the winter, no seed will be visible. Then there are the wooden or acrylic options that are painted or scented to help the plants smell their way through the winter. Some of the wood ones even have fancier smells, like fruit or even cinnamon.
Microgreen growing trays are extremely useful for anyone who has never tried to grow their own vegetables. No matter what kind of plant you are growing, there is likely a type of growing tray to match it. It is easy to keep an eye on your plants and know when it is time to change the location of the seeds. These versatile items make starting your own garden so much easier than having to purchase seeds and start from scratch.
The growing tray itself is made of durable plastic material that can withstand many bumps and spills. It is also fully removable so that you can move it around to other areas of your garden or patio, should you desire. There are many colors available and some of them are actually transparent so that your seeds will be visible to all who visit your home. These products are quite popular among those who are just getting started with growing their own plants.
If you have ever grown plants in containers before, then you probably know how important it is to choose the right size of container for your growing plants. Many of the containers sold by Microgreen are specifically designed for various kinds of plants. This means that if you are growing spinach in a tray that is made for spinach, your plants will grow healthier and have a brighter, whiter appearance to them.
While most of the growing trays have removable trays, it is important that you only remove the top trays for cleaning purposes. This way you can ensure that no dirt will get on the actual seeds or your tender plantings. If you do purchase these particular types of Microgreen trays, you will find that most of the models are inexpensive and very easy to use. They can be easily moved from one location to another, as well as taken apart in order to be recycled.
