Sunflower micro greens are deliciously nutty with the flavor of raw sunflower seeds but with the texture of spinach. They are easy to grow in just about any container you can find around the house. I like clear plastic salad mix boxes, which are food safe and easily available. But the real magic comes from watching the salad box fill with fresh greens in days to weeks. It’s a fun project to get your garden therapy in the winter and you will love how great they taste. It’s easy to do as well. See the step-by-step instructions in this post:

Now come along on a photo journey of how these greens grow, from seed to sprout!
Micro greens are different than sprouts because they are grown in soil or a soil-like medium. This is a time lapse photo journal of about 2 weeks growing time for my sunflower micro greens.

Do you need to punch holes in the bottom of the container?
Nope. Just watch the watering. It’s only going to be in the soil for a week.
