Baby & Micro Greens

"C" asked me to clarify what types of veggies I could grow for micro and baby greens. Well, there's lots, but some I wouldn't grow simply because we don't like the flavor. But the ones I don't particularly like are indeed edible, and in a severe crisis I'd surely grow and eat them. Hubby might choose the go hungry, but not I. 

Here's a partial list. I'm taking them out of my head as I think of them. But I put them into alphabetical order for ease of perusing: 

Alfalfa
Amaranth
Anise
Arugula
Aztec Spinach
Basil
Beans
Beet
Bok choy
Borage
Broccoli
Buckwheat
Cabbage
Carrot
Cauliflower
Chervil
Chinese cabbage
Cilantro
Collard
Corn
Cowpeas
Cress
Daikon
Dandelion
Dill
Fennel
Kale
Kohlrabi
Mint
Mustard
Lentils
Nasturtium
Radish
Okra
Onion
Orach
Parsley
Peas
Purslane
Radish
Rutabaga
Sorrel
Soybean
Sunflower
Tatsoi
Turnip
Wheat
Other assorted Asian greens

I've never tried them but I assume that squash and pumpkin sprouts would be edible. There are other veggies that could be added to this list for micro and baby greens, but they don't come to mind right now.

  2. Hi!

    I love your blog! I have a question about the lung worm... I heard that the lung worm parasite is cause for concern in HI. What's it like being a farmer with a parasite on the islands that prevents people from eating local produce? How does this effect you and what are you doing about the parasite in your crops?
