Mark Your Calendar: Easter Grass

Easter comes early this year. If you're planning on using
wheat grass in your Easter baskets or in your spring decorating, plan on planting it this weekend or early next week so it will be lush and tall and super green for the big day.

My so-easy-they-hardly-count-as-instructions instructions are here. You typically need between 1 and 2 weeks to get the grass to the really pretty stage.

Oh Bek! I actually learned it from Lisa. She's the master wheat grass grower and painter of ceramic pots.

yes, the grass is greener on the other side!
we make these "grassy" heads which a british gal taught me to make, they are so funny, stocking filled with sawdust, eyes, for nose, add mouth and the grass is on top and starts to grow....
fun to clip and style as it grows out and teaches children how to take care of something!

Where do you find the wheat kernels?

Are the wheat kernels anything special or are they the same as wheat you use to grind up and make bread? Ha ha...I probably sound so dumb but I am pretty clueless when it comes to gardening!! I want to do this though...such a great idea!!

That's right Heidi, they're just wheat kernels you use for grinding.

Cara, you can find them at any health food store.

I sprout some wheat grass once in awhile, but never thought to use it as an Easter decoration. Great idea!
