Wheatgrass for spring

I've always wanted to grow some wheatgrass in little planters for indoor decoration. It looks so fresh and spring-y. Well friends, this is the year!

After seeing Susan's post yesterday I made up my mind to put a couple of planters together this weekend. This morning I picked up some hard red wheat from the bulk section of the health food store and a couple of serving dishes to plant it in from a thrift store. Now I just need to go get some potting soil and some rocks for the bottom of the dishes and we'll be good to go.

E has been fascinated with gardening lately and so he was excited this morning when I told him that we'd be planting some grass together. I'll let you know how it goes. Apparently wheatgrass takes about a week to grow so if you get some started this weekend you can have a cute centerpiece ready for Easter.
