How-To: Sprouted Wheatgrass
Categories: Grow, How-To, In the Kitchen
Adding a patch of green to a sunny windowsill, wheatgrass is easy-to-grow at home for use in your spring centerpieces and tabletops. An added bonus, their clippings are high in vitamins A, C, E, and B complex for juicing or a healthy addition to smoothies and salad dressings.
To grow yours, follow these simple steps:
1. Soak seeds in water for 8-12 hours.
2. Fill a shallow tray with soil. Water the soil, and spread wheat grass seeds evenly across the top. Cover the seeds lightly in soil and mist with water from a spray bottle. Place the tray away from direct sunlight.
3. In a few days, you'll see the grass beginning to sprout. Water periodically to keep soil moist.
4. To harvest, when the grass reaches roughly 7"H, cut the grass with scissors 0.5" above the soil.
