Easiest Winter Microgreens

Microgreens are a great winter crop, as are sprouts. Crops which do better in cooler weather will work best, especially if your home is cooler than average or has variable temperatures.

The easiest microgreens for growing without having to use heat mats or other special compensations in the winter, are:

  • Cabbages
  • Lettuces
  • Broccoli Raab
  • Sunflower (grows very fast)
  • Beet
  • Pea
  • Arugula
  • Kale
  • Turnip Greens
  • Radish
  • Broccoli

Those plants enjoy cooler temps, and indeed, grow with a sweeter flavor in the cold weather than they do in the heat. They all grow easily, and fairly quickly, and except for turnips and beets, can be grown with or without dirt (root crops really need dirt).

Keep the fresh veggies coming through the winter!
