We might not be able to grow giant pumpkins in our homes (or can we?) but pumpkin microgreens and greens are absolutely delicious with flavors reminiscence of broccoli, green beans, spinach and asparagus, without the bitterness that many leafy greens carry.
These seeds can be sprouted or grown as microgreens and baby greens. The baby greens can be stewed or stir fried just like broccoli, collard and many other large leafy greens. The large pumpkin shoots can be harvested in just a week!
