Growing Easter Grass

Time to plant the grass for the boys' Easter baskets (O.K., so technically they are no longer “boys” but we still put together Easter baskets for them). Fill basket liners with a couple of inches of potting soil . . .

Cover with wheat berries . . .

Spray the heck out of them with water . . .

Cover with plastic wrap to create a mini-greenhouse . . .

Now keep moist in a sunny spot until the grass begins to sprout . . .

Maria, I just sent John a belated Happy Birthday greeting! 21 is such a milestone birthday, and I'm glad you all got to spend it together. His easel, and self-portrait, are wonderful! I hope you post an update on the Easter grass basket in the weeks to come!

Really?? Wheat berries? I guess I didn't make the connection that wheat berries could sprout to make grass. Awesome! (What can I say, I live in Alaska!) HA! I'll be excited to follow the progress of your grass...and how awesome that its for easter baskets! You are awesome Mama!

That is cool! I look forward to seeing what the basket will look like after the grass is up.

I haven't ever seen this before. I do hope you show photos of the grass as it grows. Where do you find wheat berry seads? Very cool.
