Sound good - let's dig in...First, appreciate that a micro green is just a stage of vegetative development - it's the time after a seed sprouts, but before it becomes a plant. Most seeds can be grown to the micro green stage where they are tender, flavorful, and full of nutrients.
Grab yourself a milk carton, tetra-pak or similar, a half gallon is nice but a quart sized container works fine. Wash it out to remove any trace of the contents.
Use scissors to cut into the carton and remove a piece as shown by the dashed line. Adjust the size and shape of your cut as appropriate for your container - this shape works great and preserves the strength of the container, but you can get creative here as well.
Take that piece and drop it straight down into the carton. This will create a shelf to grow your micro greens on.
