Aiken, United States - September 29, 2020 /NewsNetwork/ —

Michael Simons celebrated the one year anniversary of NKBJ Microgreens in August by introducing Mesclun Salad Mix as the third type of microgreens salad mix he grows to meet the needs of customers in the greater Aiken, SC, area.

Microgreens are the nutrient dense seedlings of vegetables and herbs that contain 4-to-40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts.

The microgreens in Mesclun Salad Mix are arugula, endive, kale, lettuce, mustard, spinach and Swiss chard.

“Mesclun salad mix microgreens enliven any selected food, from eggs to salads to plain baked potatoes. Beside a little crunch, it adds a hint of spice, not too much, just perfect,” stated Barbara S., an NKBJ Microgreens Subscription Program member who lives in Aiken. “Also, the mix flavors meats, poultry and fish, adding a new seasoning to make the meal interesting. I have ordered the mesclun salad mix, along with my staple arugula a number of times, including this week.”

Michael Simons founded NKBJ Microgreens in 2019 when he saw the need to provide health-conscious consumers with locally grown, nutrient-dense, freshly harvested microgreens. He currently grows 8 different kinds of microgreens that have a variety of colors, textures, flavors, and nutrient profiles.

Simons states that he is proud of the fact that his premium microgreens are “grown with love in Aiken County, SC” — not outsourced. He found that his commitment to growing microgreens with strictly non-GMO seed — and organic seed when he can get it — resonates with consumers at home and with chefs at area restaurants. They also appreciate his dedication to using no fertilizers, no fungicides, no herbicides, and no pesticides in his microgreens operation.

From October 2019 until mid-March 2020, Michael and his wife Vicki faithfully sold their products at a local market on Saturdays. During that time, they built a customer base — including 3 area restaurants — with whom they were able to stay in touch when the market closed.

While the market was closed, NKBJ Microgreens continued to meet customers’ needs at an alternative location. The couple found that delivering their products directly to homes and businesses exclusively through their Subscription Program meets customer needs better than returning to the market that imposed restrictions on both vendors and customers.

“I order microgreens from NKBJ Microgreens every week and I love them! As a Subscription Program member, not only do I receive their best prices, but the microgreens are delivered right to my home,” said Michelle A. of Aiken. “Talk about the ultimate in convenience! I don’t have to go visit a market during certain hours in order to get the fresh, delicious, healthy microgreens that add so much flavor and texture to my meals.”

Michael Simons provides free delivery of microgreens in either live grow trays (customer care and harvest) or deli trays (recipe ready harvested product) to those who place a minimum order.

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Oct 25, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Oct 25, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Oct 25, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

Oct 25, 2020

SEATTLE — After a lackluster thud to begin Pac-12 Conference play, Washington rebounded with its biggest conference blowout in nearly a decade. Isaiah Stewart scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Quade Green added 14 points and Washington rebounded from a loss to open conference play with a 72-40 romp over Southern California on Sunday night. Stewart was again dominant on the interior despite sitting the final 9 minutes of the first half with foul trouble. The freshman post was 6-of-12 shooting and had two of Washington’s 12 blocked shots. Fellow freshman Jaden McDaniels added 11 points despite an off...
