North absolutely delighted in spreading the seeds out and covering them with dirt. Then we watered them well and covered the earth with a wet paper towel for the first couple days until the seeds germinated. Within 3 days we had the beginnings of grass and within 5 days we had a whole green grassy patch! The beauty of the wheat grass seeds is that they are quite large so North was able to pull one out and see the roots growing out of the bottom of the seed and a grass shoot coming out of the top of the seed- observing the whole green organism at work.
Fill a shallow bowl with earth
Cover with wheatgrass seeds
Cover seeds with a thin layer of earth
Cover with wet paper towel until germinated
Put in sun
We'll leave this bowl out for the Bunny on the Saturday before Easter Sunday along with a little note and decorations. When North wakes up on Easter morning I am sure there will be some big sections missing from the grass where the Bunny has had a nibble.
Do you have any Easter traditions or creative ideas you'd like to share?
