Have you ever grown microgreens in a high tunnel?
With my tomatoes and peppers likely being done by late September, I am considering seeding a fast-growing cool-season crop in early October in high tunnels for baby leaf or microgreen production. By Halloween, our average high/low outdoors drops to 41/23 degrees F, and day length at that time is around 9 1/2 hours. I would use row covers as needed. Crops I'm considering include daikon radish, mustard, tatsoi and spinach.
What do you think? Economically viable or waste of time? There's definitely a market for it here. Is it even safe to produce microgreens directly in the ground as opposed to soilless media?
