Defeated by tiny little greens, microgreens in fact

I don't like to admit failure but there comes a time when it is just not worth keeping up the fight. The microgreens just didn't do what a) I expected them to, or b) do it fast enough. I've had enough expereince growing things, these suckers were just too slow. They had moisture and light, but never seemed to get going.

In the end they smelled bad. I don't want to eat that!

I take full responsibility, they didn't fail, I failed them. I'm pretty disappointed but then again, a meal did not depend on them, they were going to be a pretty garnish for goodness sake.

I'll try again sometime, or just focus on the coming spring.  Failure is OK as long as you learn from it.

Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!

  1. RIP Microgreens :( I reckon if you try again in the Summertime you will get a better result. You will be able to grow them in the fresh air where they won't suffer from excessive humidity.

  2. Perhaps you are right Mark. I'm looking forward to it. Now to just get rid of the snow that is still here.
