Now is the time to plant Wheat grass if you want it for Easter. I love the green of wheat grass at this time. It grows in about a week so this weekend would be a good time to plant. :) I plant it in small containers like these. Doesn’t this egg remind you of the Facebook Egg Hunt from a few years ago?
And these little egg bowls..
The wheat grass seeds we get are organic and you can eat it. I can’t imagine eating grass just like that, eating little tiny blades of grass. Actually, there is a wheat grass blender so if you want the benefits of wheat grass, you can drink it. According to several sites that I looked at there are a great many health benefits from eating freshly grown wheat grass, but that isn’t what this post is about. This post is about having lush, green grass to make the Easter table pretty and be part of the Easter decorations anywhere around the house.
This year I saved egg shells and painted them pink and yellow with acrylic paints. I had lots of fun painting these eggs and they came out so soft looking. I planted the wheat grass seeds after soaking them for a day in water (that helps them sprout faster). Actually, there is no “planting” the wheat grass seeds. You fill up the containers to about 1/2 inch from the top with potting soil and then just lay the seeds right on top of the soil. You mist them every day until they get roots. They get roots really, really fast and the roots are LONG. After they get roots they need to be watered. I planted the seeds right in these little egg shells and I put the little eggs in these cute little egg holders I bought in Joann a few years ago.
If you would like to grow your own wheat grass for Easter or after as a health drink you can get the organic seeds from Amazon HERE. (not getting any compensation for this referral – in fact Connecticut bloggers cannot sell for Amazon at all. Our Governor Dan Malloy insisted that Amazon give Connecticut a full listing of all their sellers and how much each seller made. Amazon said, “no” and so the governor said that no Connecticut resident can sell for Amazon. Period. I tried setting up an account and at the end of the application it said that people in Connecticut cannot sell for Amazon. There were a few other states as well. I can really get gripey about this.
Meanwhile, this is cute to look at... a little bird and some eggs in a nest.
Hey, everyone, blessed Palm Sunday to all. I wanted to do a post on what to do craftwise with palms from church but it didn’t happen. So I’ll give a link to last year’s post on Palm Sunday crafts.
