Easter Grass

I had been wanting to try to grow our own "Easter Grass" for the past two years, and finally I am doing it this year. The reasons for doing so, are that we can  not stand the fake plastic grass that gets everywhere, and want a more sustainable natural method of decorating the kid's Easter baskets. They were very excited to grow grass for their baskets, and helped fill the little tray with soil and put down a layer of wheat berries and then sprinkle them with water. We currently have a 5 gallon bin of wheat that we intend to grind into flour, so I was able to steal a few handfuls to use for the Easter baskets. Below is picture of the wheat six days later.
