Wheatgrass is also a type of microgreen that can be grown with little soil or space. Every Easter, the children in my son’s preschool would line their baskets with plastic wrap, a small layer of dirt and a layer of wheatgrass seeds. They would water daily until real “Easter grass” filled their Easter baskets. And when my son was done, our chickens happily ate the wheatgrass, seeds and all.To grow your own wheatgrass, soak seeds overnight. Sprinkle them over potting soil, then lightly press and moisten. Cover the container with newspaper soaked in water so that it is moist and dark for four days; remove the paper once leaves emerge so that they can photosynthesize in the sunlight. After a week, you should have wheatgrass, and you can harvest it for juice or smoothies by cutting off the top two-thirds of the plant. To keep a constant supply, plant four or five pots and rotate, as seen in this mini farm disguised as a table arrangement.
