Here is an Url for growing
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
The question you probably
have is, “Why, wheat grass?”
Here are some of the ways I
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.
