i grew some wheatgrass. because it’s pretty. and you can too! it’s supercalafragalistic easy.
buy some hard red wheat berries. after a tip, i found mine at whole foods in their bulk section. i bought about a pound, and had lots left over.
soak the amount of seeds you think you’ll need (for this project i estimated about a cup, and ended up using only about 1/2 of that) overnight (or for two days because you didn’t have time the next day, like me).
put a layer of rocks on the bottom of your container for drainage.
fill your container with soil almost to the top. i used a mix of regular soil and miracle-gro seed starting soil, with the miracle-gro filling the top half. slightly wet the soil.
cover the top of the soil with the seeds.
cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. lightly water.
several times a day (about three) mist with water. in a few days you should start to see sprouts. then watch the grass grow like crazy from there.
every couple days give the grass a haircut for a nice, trim look.
fresh, colorful, easy, cheap. just how i like it.
(and don’t you just die over the pots? ikea!)
p.s. i am off to florida tomorrow! and then i move! so i’ll probably by mia for the next week, i know you’ll miss me (but maybe i’ll find time to share a couple pics here and there).
my goal for vacation is to be completely relaxed and stressed free, not thinking about work or moving. and not gaining back the 6.5 pounds i’ve lost — that’s right, i am only .5 lbs away from my vacation goal weight! maybe when i weigh in tomorrow i will have officially reached it…we’ll see. either way i’m happy at my progress.
have a good memorial day weekend!
