I have puttered around in the garden as far back as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are picking strawberries from the garden with my grandpa.
My dad always called me a Johnny Appleseed. Love to plant stuff, hate to weed and take care of it. When I started seeing microgreen videos on YouTube I was intrigued. Plant, water, harvest. That’s about it. Oh, and a whole lot of planning which appeals to my past life as a programmer.
What I didn’t foresee was how much I would enjoy the relationships. Getting to know local chefs. Talking to customers at the farmer’s market. Seeing the creative ways my products are being used all over town. It is very rewarding to go out to dinner and have my plate presented with produce that was in my basement that morning.
Everything I deliver is grown to order and cut the same day. I hate to pat myself on the back, but I would say that is hard to beat that for freshness and shelf-life. Because I am a one person operation I can also be fairly flexible. By default I deliver in micro-perforated bags, but if clamshells work better for your kitchen I can do that too. Want the stems cut shorter? Sure thing. Let’s sit down and discuss your menu and what would work best. I’ll bring samples!
