Edible Boston: Microgreens

Technically speaking, microgreens are the shoots of salad vegetables such as arugula, Swiss chard, mustard, beetroot, etc., picked just after the first leaves have developed.  It's said that they pack four to six times more nutrients than their fully grown counterparts.  For a recent issue of Edible Boston I got to visit several area growers including We Grow Microgreens, LLC and First Leaves Family Farm.

Working on a tiny scale I tried to bring across the colors and textures of the microgreens, by creating full page images of the leaves.
