I have a grow light type germination rig set up in a spare room. It's basically a 4 foot, two-bulb fluorescent fixture suspended by chain over a horizontal piece of 12x48 foot, 1/2 inch MDF; everything is painted gloss white. It was used last spring to start vegetable seedlings.
Using discarded foam egg containers, separate the top from the bottom. Cut holes in the bottom of each individual egg compartment and fit the lid beneath the bottom.
Moisten some seed starting top soil and fill eleven of the separate compartments. Leave one empty so you can add water. Put the seed on top of the soil and set it under a light source. There should be about 1/8 inch empty space beneath the bottom to accommodate water, which will wick its way into the sprouting medium.
There are now, after just three days, some microgreens starting to sprout. Bon apetit!
