After 2 weeks you will be able to harvest your newly grown wheat grass
Start off by placing about 5 inches of your growing mix in your planter. If you wish to add a mineral complex to the soil, azomite has been used by farmers in the US since 1942 to increase crop production. Next, add your wheat seeds to the top of the soil mixture. Don't worry too much about overcrowding them because you are going to harvest them before they mature anyway. Cover the seeds with 1/2 inch of soil. Water lightly and move to the designated area in your home. In about 7 to 10 days you will have sprouts appearing. Keep a watch on the moisture content of the soil and water when necessary. After about 2 weeks in total, you will be able to show off to your family that you can grow wheat grass in your home. Take the plants and cut them about 1/2 inches above the soil. In another week to 10 days, you will be able to harvest another batch. Again, if you do not have access to such supplies where you live, you can also consider picking up a wheatgrass
kit. They contain all the soil, minerals, seeds, trays and instructions for you to grow wheat grass and enjoy this wonderful green super food.
