This is a terrific book for anyone interested in microgreens. We found the broad range of information wonderful, as the authors detail cultivation, a nice array of varieties, and a very useful selection of recipes from West Coast chefs. Highly recommended.

Inside Cover: "Recognized as some of the most nutrient-dense greens available, those tiny leaves known as 'microgreens' are packed with big flavor. And now, with simple instructions, you can grow your own little greens of arugula, basil, purple, cabbage, chard, radishes, broccoli, cilantro, and more.
Microgreens teaches the easy process of how to plant and grow the little greens, as well as how to harvest--which on average is about 2 weeks after sowing. And the small amount of space needed to grow microgreens--a porch, patio, deck, windowsill, or balcony--allows them to be easily incorporated into daily meals. The greens' nutritional potency make them a must-eat in a healthy diet.
Eaten alone as a salad or added to soups, entrees, sandwiches, burgers, or anything else imaginable--these tiny greens will enhance everyday food and life."
