Tiny Greens…

Another new development – we have started to grow micro greens in our micro green system.  This is a 6-tiered hydroponic system that will eventually utilize our matured aquaponic water for growing the micros.  The beautiful part about micro greens is that you are harvesting them so young that there is no need to fertilize the plants.  Therefore, we are using our carbon-filtered water that is pH-adjusted, and are seeing great results thus far.  We started with a variety from some older seeds I had, but plan to focus in on 2-3 varieties, so we can ensure a consistent supply to our restaurants and retail customers.  Some of the micros we grew in our first run include: arugula, pac choi, red cabbage, two mustard varieties, lemon basil, opal basil, cinnamon basil, and some more.
