Best microgreens to grow indoors  easy crops to try

Chefs in fine dining establishments have long admired the best microgreens for their unique flavors and visual appeal. 

But you don't have to wait until you can afford to eat out at a fancy restaurant; the beauty of growing your own

microgreens is that you can experiment with different seeds, pick your favorite, and embark on your own culinary adventure.

Growing microgreens is a simple and enjoyable windowsill gardening pastime. It is feasible to cultivate a variety of leafy greens, herbs, and salads at home with very little equipment and have them ready to harvest in as little as a week. 

These miniaturized replicas of full-sized plants can be clipped and used raw to salads, soups, stews, sandwiches, and smoothies for a blast of taste and a splash of bright color. 

Trying out different microgreens and using them into your food couldn't be easier. All you need is a seed tray container, some compost, a mister, and a sunny windowsill. 

Microgreen leaves are microscopic, but they are densely packed with nutrients. Some may be surprised to learn that seedlings contain the same vitamins and minerals as fully-grown plants. 

'It is critical to supply good levels of warmth and light to the microgreens in order to get a strong degree of germination and avoid the seedlings from becoming too lanky,' says Drew Swainston, Homes & Gardens content editor and expert kitchen gardener.
