How to Sow
You shouldn’t have to sow chia more than once. After that, they come up on their own every year. Rake them lightly into soil or sow them shallowly in trays or small pots. They will need lots of moisture to germinate.
How to Harvest
Pick your Chia seed heads when most of the petals have fallen off and dry them flat on a clean sheet of paper or place them in a cloth bag so that you don’t lose the seeds as they fall from the drying seed heads. Now you can either use the seed as is or sprout it for microgreens.
