Hi, this is my first post here, on a recommendation from a backyardchickens moderator.
I'd like to start producing micro greens for local grocery stores and my chickens. Kindly provide feedback on my initial setup. This is in Ohio Zone 6/5b. Thank you!

Sounds like a cool plan! I make micro greens for myself year around!

Like @flowerbug, i see no sprouts but i do see a lot of seeds in 3 trays.

A little googling will produce numerous helps for setting up a viable operation. If that were my operation i’d mow to reclaim that wilderness and plumb the shed for water, even just a garden hose as your’ gonna do a bunch of rinseing. If you intend to market the produce, you’ll need to consider packaging as well, and refrigeration.

a few sprouts for personal use is easy enough but will take some time and careful monitoring; on a grand scale as in “selling to the public” it’s a lot bigger commitment.

good luck with that.
