Where do you go when you are looking for a unique gift for that unique person?
Uncommon Goods Review
I recently got to try a couple of products of my choice from Uncommon Goods. I have to tell you that was one hard decision. I wanted something I would really use. I wanted something that I could really enjoy and would be interesting to the kids. I wanted something useful that would last. I wanted something made in the USA and eco-friendly. Asking too much? Not from Uncommon Goods!
These Micro-Green Kits are fantastic! You can grow your own tiny farm right on your windowsill. Perfect for new gardeners who want to start small, anyone who wants fresh micro-greens at the ready for any time, and for kids to have a hand in growing something yummy. Delicious in green smoothies!
Each kit comes in a recycled steel box with a soilless growing medium, two full crops of seeds, a bamboo lid, and directions. The sprouts are USDA-certified organic. I chose the Veggie Micro-Green Kit which has organic red acre cabbage, organic mini-carrot, organic tom thumb pea seeds. The Spice Micro-Green Kit has organic japanese mibuna mustard, daikon radish, shungiku chrysanthemum seeds.
Now this choice was a sacrifice for the greater good. I am not a fan of mushrooms, but many people in my house are and I thought this would be a really fun experiment and they are really healthy. This Mushroom Kit can grow up to 1.5 lbs of pearl oyster mushrooms with just a spray of mist twice a day. I envisioned lots of pizza and dressed-up salads in our future, but I really had no idea how versatile these little mushrooms could be.
Everything is included to grow your own mushrooms: the mister, instructions and the box, plus safe and sustainable soil composed of 100% recycled coffee grounds. Using the recycled coffee grounds and growing your own means that you are not contributing to destruction of hardwood forests too. Commercially these mushrooms are grown on unsustainably harvested wood chips. Global good, good for you, and delicious!
