Grass Grow-Along – Day 1

a peek of my spring table with lentil grass

As I get ready to grow some home-made grass for the arrival of spring, I thought of doing it in a cyber group this year, to share tips, ideas in a group and to grow our knowledge on the subject through your comments and suggestions. A lot of people grow their own sprouts for consumption, in jars or with special appliances designed for growing grass dirt-free. The method can be used for grass that we grow with our children, for our spring table, although the same method can be used with dirt, if you wish.

Before I confuse y’all further, here are the supplies you’ll need for this grow-along project:

1 cup wheat
1 cup lentil
A dish for each
Spray bottle
Dish towel

Today, soak your lentil or wheat in a bowl of water. I will do the same. Tomorrow, I’ll share a photo of what the sprouts look like when they are ready to take out of water and into a dish.

Meanwhile go around your house and see what kind of dishes you want to use to grow your grass in.

Different dishes

here are some terra cotta and pottery dishes i used last year


this easy-to-make wooden container is made like a deep frame and painted

and here's my favorite cake stand i bought from a yard sale when we went to Cumberland Lake in Kentucky


when using a deep container like this i place small rocks at the bottom for drainage

this basket is lined with plastic ... nothing like real grass in an Easter basket
