What do you know about microgreens? Well, first off, they are beautiful.

But not only that, they are incredibly nutritious. Infinite-Harvest, an indoor vertical farm in Colorado, describes their benefits in a manner that will probably get you excited!

Because microgreens are the seedlings of plants that we eat (think: spinach, radishes, peas), they contain every nutrient needed for the full plant to develop and thrive. This means that microgreens will have substantially more nutritional value than the plants they can grow into.

Eat spinach leaves? Microgreens have 2-3.5 times more nutrients than mature spinach leaves.
