How to grow buckwheat microgreens

Here are the steps for growing Buckwheat Microgreens:

  • First Thing – Soak buckwheat seeds in filtered water for 8-12 hours (I do mine overnight in a mason jar).
  • Drain the water from the seeds into the sink.
  • Rinse and drain the seeds.
  • Continue rinsing and draining the seeds with filtered water two or three times a day. When roots start to show, it’s on to the next step.
  • Place the seeds on a moist potting soil mix.
  • Cover the tray of seeds and potting mix lightly.
  • Keep the seeds moist by misting the buckwheat seeds as required. Twice a day is generally enough.
  • When leaves appear on the shoots, place the tray of microgreens in the sunlight or under a plant light.
  • Harvest with a sharp knife or scissors when the greens are a few inches tall and have nice healthy green leaves.
  • Yum!
