Day One: I planted red cabbage seeds, the tom thumb peas, and mini carrot seeds in my new Micro Greens Kit from Uncommon Goods. I gave the soil a bit of water and put the sweet little recycled steel box in my window sill.
Day three: Like magic, I was totally surprised to see the seeds already sprouting in such a short amount of time.
Day Six: More growth!
Day 10: My little micro greens are looking lush and cozy hanging in the Jungalow

I normally buy plants that are already grown for the jungalow. I have a tendency to be impatient, and for some reason I imagined that growing from seeds indoors would take weeks and weeks, if they grew at all. So when Uncommon Goods asked if I wanted to try one of their uncommon goods, I thought that this would be a perfect chance to give it a shot. I also have a penchant for tiny plants. You might remember my Tiniest Garden post, or my Tiny Plants in Tiny Jars post. But I’d never grown tiny edibles before, from seeds–none-the-less.
At the end of ten days I had a full, lush planter on my hands. It was so gratifying and actually really fast. I’m feeling tempted now to try out some of these other planter kits. Do you grow herbs in your kitchen? How great is it to have a fresh herbs at arms reach? I’m into it–especially since this little planter is made in the USA out of recycled materials. It feels right at home here.
