*Gasp* I am not "one of those LDS mums" Yeah it's true.. I don't have any wheat storage, I have never ground wheat, nor made a whole wheat loaf of bread (not that I don't want to.. just never have) so when I wanted to grow some grass I actually went to the health food store and purchased ....
60 cents worth of Organic Wheat!! Big spender hey!!
Soak Wheat for 8-12 hours
Sprinkle wheat over soil and wait for it to sprout (about 1-2 days)
I mist the wheat 1-2 times a day with a spray bottle of water.
I had a few fails - the seeds I put in egg boxes that had cling film under the soil did NOT sprout. The grass I put in a jar DID... so I am currently making some more in Jars.
I swear this stuff grows each time you turn your back.. we even went out for a few hours and the girls we sure it had grown while we were out. They have been measuring the grass and it grows at about 1cm a day!! We even give it haircuts regularly!!
This is about 2 weeks growth - Tall hey?
And with an egg in it. I think I might need to cut the grass shorter?
Easter Grass Anyone?
Oh and I know that I should be eating the stuff - but I dont have a juicer.. wheat grass juice is the answer to all your health needs I hear.
