    There is also a consideration of popularity of the crop. What is the demand for microgreens? How much effort do you have to put into selling them?

    Imo, the tops of the plants before the leaves expand past like 45 deg is kind of like a micro green. If u harvest those micro greens like u were topping off a plant by letting it grow a touch more and say leave one set of lower leaves, those microgreens can then b planted and not lost, almost guaranteed success. Then u get to harvest your microgreens, AND also get tons of veg plants u can jst grow. Each time it bushes out and grows new tops, u can keep harvesting those like micro greens by topping those and leaving a lower set and keep doing this. U get to eat the most tender shoots and the plant keeps bushing out

    wow john thanks a lot for this video. my dad is a chef and has connections everywhere including out of state/country. Ive been growing notill for 3 years now so this should be relatively easy to get down. didnt even know 2oz of microcilantro could go for 20$…. this could be a real opportunity! even doing this as hobby is going to be awesome.

    once you have done a harvest of microgreens they won't regrow. what may happen is that that didn't germinate may then grow, but unless you have a lot of space may not be worth the harvest yield.
    The other thing is that you wish to harvest when the true leaves pop out, peas are about 3" tall and sunflower just when the true leaves are visible. If you let the micrgreens grow too long they may not be chewable.

    of course you grab the greens in the proximity that any animals uninating on the bed would hit! Wonderful job kohler!
