Unintentional Microgreen Kale

Unintentional Microgreen Kale

In the 90's we had "Baby Vegetables," now in the new microdigital world we have "Microgreens". 

What are Microgreens you might ask? - they are a little older than sprouts but a little younger than full grown greens.  They are more nutritious and in my opinion much more flavorful!! - They are kind of like concentrated greens.

If you recall, last year we built a Hoop House in our backyard (click HERE to read about the Hoop House).  I planted some Kale from seeds that we saved (click HERE to read about Saving Seeds for greens), however I didn't plant these seeds soon enough - I planted them in November so they were never able to grow large enough during the cold winter.  I couldn't be happier with my mistake - these Kale Microgreens are scrumptious - my new favorite way to eat Kale!!
