Growing Wheat Grass for Your Pets

For those of you that have pets that like to graze on grass, buying it is expensive. You can go to the health food store and get a pound of wheat berries for about 50 cents and plant your own.


I like to use organic potting soil with no fertilizers. I keep small pots on hand, the more sparse you put seeds in the better. Lightly cover the seeds with soil, take a mister and dampen. Put in a dark warm area for 3 days, I put mine in the oven and keep it misted (I put a note on the oven to remind me it's in there!)

After 3 days, place in a sunny location and watch it grow a bit everyday. It is so easy and so cheap, and always fresh on hand! And the bag of berry seeds produces many plantings and will last a long time. I keep it refrigerated until needed to plant more.

I bought some wheat grass for my is expensive. I put the pot in a larger pot on my deck after they had munched on it. It continued to grow all year. When it snowed and them melted there was the grass as green as ever. The cats enjoyed it for a full year. I just love getting my moneys worth.
