Using discarded foam egg containers, separate the top from the bottom. Cut holes in the bottom of each individual egg compartment and fit the lid beneath the bottom. Moisten some seed starting top soil and fill eleven of the separate compartments.

Grow your own fresh salad greens at home easily. Simply plant your microgreen seeds into potting soil in an empty container and cover with a wet paper towel and lightly water. Close and wait for 5 days. After your seeds sprout remove the paper towel and leave in the sun! Snip greens to add to sandwichs or as a salad!

I have tried several inexpensive ways to grow micro greens and none are very good. Dirt is the worst, as it clings to the plants and is very hard to get them clean. Vermiculite didn't seem to work very well for me. Jiffy pellets worked great, but it's a lot of trouble to get seeds in the little pellets and they are pricey to buy. I was considering trying leftover coffee grounds as I know they are clean and because they are free :-) Any other suggestions for cheap or free medium for growing these greens?

You can purchase grow mats that are specifically made for micro greens, but they might cost more than you want to spend. Many people use a soilless potting mix.
