Perfect for Spring!
We can feel that Spring buzz in the air….the time for fresh colours and flowers and pretty things! While most of us may still be yearning for the return of our flowers in the garden, this scarf can brighten the transition from Winter to Spring!
A great project and tutorial by Amy at Watch Me Daddy
a peek of last year's 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
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.
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
