how to grow green wheat grass

Well on Pinterest the other day I ran into this cute idea of growing wheat grass in your house from Todays Fabulous Finds blog here is the link and a super great tutorial. Janet gives you day by day info and pictures she is amazing.

I just had to do some of my own I have really been getting an itch for planting but since there is like 5 inches of snow on the ground I can't do that.. so this will have to do for now. It is really a fun thing to do with your kids they loved watching it grow. I had some large food storage cans of Red Wheat that is what Janet recomended. 
The fourth day ours grew like 2 inches because of the sun.. Huge difference sun can make.. This is the begining of day 4.
 Day four..
Day 8!! isn't it so happy and green we all cant help but run our fingers over it.

 See how it brightens up this table it add so much needed springness to our home..
Happy day to you :)
