Then the work began. Each child lined the bottom of their basket with plastic, then a layer of dirt. Then we spread a good layer of wheat berries (the same wheat you grind to make flour, available in bulk at health food stores, or ask a friend who bakes…). We watered the seeds and covered it all with some plastic wrap to keep it moist.
Even the babies participated!
Voila! I am very excited for Spring!
Check back tomorrow for a few recipes for left over soaked wheat berries……..
