Growing Wheatgrass

by Nancy Fletcher

Here is an Url for growing wheatgrass:

This information is for growing wheatgrass with hydroponics. My method was not as sophisticated.  I went out to Lowe's, bought the cheap plastic flat liners for a roller paint brush. In this I used a very thin layer of potting soil. After soaking the organically grown wheat seeds over night I spread them fairly close together on that soil. I simply brushed my hand over the top of the seeds which buried them just below the soil surface. It was necessary to water them fairly often since they seem to use the water rapidly.  The seeds sprout in just a few days and in no time at all there is green wheat growing.

The question you probably have is, “Why, wheat grass?”

Here are some of the ways I used it:

Trim the tops of the grass, wash and drop a hand full of it in the blender. Add a glass of water and whirl it around until the water becomes very green. This liquid you use for the cold water part of jello.  If you use it in a cherry jello it makes a black cherry color which is very nice. One can almost see the immediate health benefits which work quickly for calmer, sweeter children as well as adults. If you have any people with blue eyes in the family watch their eyes become bluer and brighter almost instantly.

If you don't use more than a cup in a quart of V-8 juice one can get away with that too. Read the Url I sent to explain how beneficial this is as to enzymes. Enzymes are the stepping stones in the blood for vitamins to work.

Another thing I do with it is to mix it in the Italian salad dressing. The juice of a lemon plus the  herbs in the dressing allow the  strong taste of  wheat grass juice to be overcome.  Just don't use  too much.

I'm sure you will be able to come up with other inventive ways of getting this nutritious,  rich in vitamins and enzyme juice to your family.
