wheat grass + spring party

do you plant wheat grass? if you get it planted any day this week, it should be the perfect length by april 24th. instructions to plant wheat grass are simple…

  • use good soil.
  • fill your planter/pot/jar almost to the top with soil. i like to go about 1″ from the top. or, use a thin layer of soil. this is your choice – you do not have to have a lot of soil to grow the grass. i have had success using pots with drainage and without. if you are concerned about drainage and your pot does not have holes in the bottom, line the bottom with pebbles.
  • lay a generous layer of wheat grass seeds.
  • cover with 1/8 to 1/4 inch soil. very little.
  • water daily.

the seeds should sprout within 3 days, and your grass will be growing fairly quickly after that… if you want to juice it, it should be ready within 15 days. i recommend purchasing your wheat grass seeds in bulk from a health food store or market, it will be MUCH LESS than buying it as seed packets from a nursery, etc. i found seeds locally for about $1.50/pound at sunflower market. my wood box planters are from ikea here. i also used these, so we are going to have wheat grass everywhere!
