Hydroponic Microgreens

Trying a new experiment here. We have a couple of entrepreneurs nearby who developed an incredible hydroponic greenhouse. You can see what they are doing on this website… Upward Harvest

It’s really worth watching, I promise, you will be amazed. We bought a flat of mixed micro-greens to plant in our garden…


As you can see there are all kinds of greens…kale, arugula, watercress, peas, beets etc.  I planted them in our garden and covered them with netting to protect them from deer, rabbits, turkey, grasshoppers and all the delightful creatures we have about…



So we’ll see how they do. In the hoop house the beans are growing valiantly…


Along with the marigolds…


We have an abundance of hot peppers…


We purchased new plastic for the hoop house and hopefully we will have that up before it freezes.

It’s September and in September I do the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, thought I’d share one here with you all just for fun…

  1. That is a great idea to replant microgreens! It looks like the are doing very well! Looking forward to hearing how it works out! Your peppers look perfect ! Do you dry or preserve them?


    • So far the microgreens are doing great. I’m starting to thin them out a bit. Sarah has been making a hot sauce with the peppers..maybe she’ll post it on her blog??? She also chops one up in cantaloupe chunks with lime ~ you should try it, it’s amazing!!!
