Growing your own Microgreens

I decided to step up my spout game and invested in an affordable Seed Sprouter Trays with 4 Layers Shelf Soil-Free .  I like that it's soil free and doesn't need any other sort of base either. Along with the previous seeds I shared in my last Sprout post, I purchased a large bulk order below:
One pound of the following: Bean Salad Mix-Bean (Adzuki, Lentil, Mung), Radish, Crunchy Lentil Fest (Green, Red & French Lentils), Clover, Green Peas, Green Lentils, 3 Part Salad Mix (Alfalfa, Radish, Broccoli), Protein Powerhouse (Garbanzo, Snow Pea), 5 Part Salad Mix (Alfalfa, Radish, Broccoli, Mung & Lentil), Alfalfa, Garbanzo, Mung Beans. Sprouts are high in protein, essential amino acids, and eight digestive enzymes; vitamins A, C, B compels (including B-12), D, E and K; minerals iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium and potassium; and - when exposed to light - very high in chlorophyll. 

Once I receive the items I look forward to sharing my progress in growing microgreens.  

Here are two very helpful videos to start your  microgreen growing journey:)
