Organic Microgreens

Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens in Easton grows its organic microgreens directly in soil, which means they’re more flavorful and nutrient-dense than hydroponically-grown greens. Each package combines the tender shoots and diminutive baby leaves of upwards of seven different herbs and greens, harvested as little as five days after planting. The Very Veggie blend includes beet, broccoli, and radish greens, along with onion-y chives, sweet pea shoots, and brilliant golden corn shoots. They make a delicate salad base paired with a light vinaigrettte and other seasonal vegetables, or a stunning finishing garnish to roasted root vegetables or braised short ribs.
