WANTED: Cilantro & Fennel Seed for Microgreens

Ralph Whisnant(z7b-8 NC)October 2, 2009

I have seed of organically grown cilantro and bronze fennel that I would like to share at the Raleigh plant swap next Saturday. Both are for use in growing micro-greens and the fennel seed can be crushed and used for making tea. (Cilantro seed are sold as the spice coriander.) I planted a 10 x 20-inch plant tray with approx 1,000 cilantro seed a month ago to harvest as micro-greens. Micro-greens are supposed to be harvested just as the first true leaves start to form, but mine are now getting past that stage and are still excellent added to a mixed green salad, salsa, etc. I am also harvesting micro-greens of chinese cabbage, mizuna and some other asian greens to use to spice up lettuce and spinach salads. If you are interested, I suggest that you Google micro-greens for more information. Then if you would like enough cilantro and/or fennel seed to plant a tray (about 1/2 oz is around 900 seeds) and are coming to the Raleigh swap next weekend, please let me know. I also have some small cilantro plants in 6-cell packs that I can share for planting in the ground (They tolerate cold weather if given frost protection.) I am looking for seed of any cool weather crop. especially broccoli, if anyone has extra, but you do not need anything to trade for the above.

Ralph, we'd be happy to use up some cilantro micro greens! And i'd happily plant a 6 pack or 2 of cilantro for overwintering. We make fresh salsa and guac frequently and they just aren't the same without cilantro! Plus it's great in thai, and we've been doing a lot of that lately, too. I have some extra redbor kale seed i could share- that would probably make a good micro green. Let me know if you're interested. Pinetree sells big packs of seeds especially for that and sprouts. I love sprouts and go through phases where i grow them a lot and then they fall by the wayside. My favorite is a cabbage, alphalfa and radish sprout combo. yum!

Tammy, will bring you some of each. And I would like the Kale seed to try as micro-greens. The forum added the 'Wanted' heading to my post. Is there any way to change it to 'Have', and what do I do to prevent them from adding 'Wanted' in the future?

I don't know of any way to change it once it's posted. Probably whoever is in charge of the forums could do it, but it hardly seems worth that effort. I also wish it didn't automatically add one or the other, but i guess they figure it's an exchange forum. Be nice if it gave you and error message and then said you had to choose or or the other instead of deciding for you.

I'll bring you the redbor! Thanks, much.

Hi Ralph, I'm coming to the Raleigh swap and would like to get a 6-pack of your cilantro. If there is anything else you want off of my list for the Raleigh Swap just let me know. I think I've got you down for ground ivy and socialis.

Thanks, Judy
