Grow Ten Different Microgreens with this Complete Kit from TrueLeaf Market

True Leaf Market’s deluxe microgreens kit includes supplies and instructions for growing a large selection of microgreens both hydroponically and in soil. While some seeds are easier to grow hydroponically (broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, kale, mustard, etc.), other seeds will do much better in soil (sunflower, pea, cilantro, beet, etc.).

On my first attempt,  I was unable to grow the lovely three-inch greens, mine broiled after a few hours in the sun, I can’t vouch for this product yet. But on my second try, I got some good-looking, hearty greens. Don’t leave them in the sun!

This microgreens kit includes everything you need to get started with both approaches, allowing you to harvest and enjoy the broadest selection of flavors and colors in just ten days. Microgreen Kit $147

Canon Digital MonocularThis Compact Monocular from Canon Brings Things Closer

Go further and see farther with the ZOOM Digital Monocular. Easily and clearly see distant subjects closer, wherever you are. With the one-touch three-step button, quickly switch the telephoto lens from 100mm optical to 400mm optical, and directly to 800mm digital for subjects even further away. I’m not really sure why this is needed, perhaps it would be good for a game drive or other wildlife viewing. It’s not a great camera or telescope, it’s kind of in the middle of both.

Its sleek, compact design is pocket-sized so you can comfortably take the ZOOM with you anywhere you go from sporting events to nature walks and more. Image Stabilization helps keep the view steady and Auto Focus helps keep your field of vision crisp and sharp. A 12-megapixel CMOS sensor lets you capture Full HD 30fps video, as well as still images.

With built-in Wi-Fi®,3 and Bluetooth®,4, you can even connect to your compatible smartphone for Remote LiveView shooting2 or transfer images and videos to enjoy or share later on. The ZOOM Digital Monocular is a fun and affordable viewing option with a fantastic far-reaching zoom so you won’t miss any details, even those further in the distance. ”
