Vicki educated the members on how easy it is to grow INDOOR EDIBLES.

Examples of inside edibles are:

Soaks –  Hydrated nuts like almonds

Sprouts – Baby plants grown quickly in 4 to 7 days in a soil less method

Microgreens – Baby plants grown in quality potting mix

Shoots – Peas, Sunflower, and Wheat Grass are called Microgreens and shoots.

Baby Greens – Young “salad” plants, usually a mixed variety,  grown in potting mix, past the 2nd leaf stage, and harvested by trimming the leaves as needed.

Vicki’s presentation was interesting and very educational.

Members were excited to take home seeds and potting soil to start growing their own Microgreens.
