I was inspired to try to grow some wheat grass. So I bought some wheat grass seeds and soil and found a window box insert container at Home Depot. The plan was for the hubs to make a planter box to go around it...but the grass grew so fast we didn't get around to it!
This is what the grass looked like about 10 days after I put the seeds in the soil. It was so long I had to cut it! It's actually quite difficult to get grass evenly cut when you're using scissors. Oh well.
this idea for a craft. The kids love pinwheels so we made our own and stuck them in the grass. (although this was almost 2 weeks later from the pictures above and the grass was on its way out) Instead of putting our pinwheels on top of pencils like in the tutorial we used...we went out and found sticks to hook them to.
Have you ever tried to grow wheat grass?
