Before we talk about the next steps. Please understand that this is our simple method and approach to grow 'wheat grass', if you have a better experience and know easier way to grow our own superfood, please feel free to share it with us and we will make sure to share it on our website.
Take a empty pot, take some soil,compost, dry grass, dry leaves, little kitchen waste, old news paper. What ever you can find around you. You will eat the food grown in this pot so make sure not to add anything toxic or plastic.
Now mix all this in a wider container or on a old news paper before adding the mix in the pot. The idea is to have our soil soft and spongy to allow air circulation and water penetration. Make sure to put some small stones or pebbles at the bottom of the pot to allow the access water to flow out of the holes which are in the bottom of the pot, this holes are there because of a reason.
Talk to your seeds before planting them!
Yes, it sounds funny to talk to our seeds, but they will love it when you tell them to be stronger and healthier and how much you care about them and love them, after all.... that love is going to come back to you in 2 weeks with a multiplied effect :)
Now fill up your empty pot with all the soil mix you have made, water the pot till it over flows. After a while the access water will run out and you are ready to let your seed babies play in the playground.
Take out two hand full of the soil mix and keep it aside in another container, then sprinkle a hand full of seeds on the main pot and pamper them with some love, tell them they look cute playing in the soil. Now sprinkle the soil mix over this seeds like covering them with a blanket of soft soil. This will keep them moist and happy. It will look like they are just pipping out a little but are still hiding under the care of their mum.
Sprinkle some water over it, and let them enjoy for the day!
Too much sun is not good so keep the pot in a place where it can get the morning or evening soft sunlight but not the harsh noon sun. Sprinkle water once a day, too much water is no good for them!
And here they GO!
All happy and exited to see the world in just couple of days!
If you talk to them everyday... they will grow much faster!
Couple of more days and they stand tall!
Look at me... look at me... I am one week old!
They look gorgeous, don't they?
And now I am all yours! That's what they say in two weeks!
Now they are ready to pluck and nibble upon! Go ahead try one... do they taste sweet? ya.... they do!
Ask them if they are ready to be plucked! YES... they will say!
Its always good to pluck them by hands without using any tools, they love it that way.
Wash them well, and enjoy them! They will bring you so much of nutrition.
You can make juice out of it, use as a garnish on salad or curries, just eat them as they are, do what ever it feels like!
