Hello hello! Hope you all had an awesome weekend! Whoever thought to have the weekend only be two days and the week be five??? Isn't that a little off balance?...I'm just sayin'.
To celebrate spring I decided that I needed to bring some yummy signs of spring into my house. This came in the form of lemon cupcakes. They didn't last long. So, I figured I should bring in something that would last a little longer.
Yes...that came in the form of grass. Which can't be eaten. Although when these were growing my husband did think I was growing them for wheat grass shots. I love him...but he should know that I wouldn't trust myself to making my own wheat grass shots...the case being...that I wouldn't know where to start...and even if this grass is edible in the first place. Annnywhoooo..
So, to start off. I just got some cheap bowls I found at Tai Pan. I've also seen these square bowls..well pretty much everywhere. I think they only cost me about $2 each.
Then, I went to the side of my house where my potting soil has been sitting all summer/fall/winter...and hoped to goodness there wasn't any 'special' surprises in there when I stuck my hand in.
Luckily...if there were...I didn't see them or feel them.
Next, I got some grass seed from Home Depot. I truly didn't know what kind to get. I wanted it to be dense, and didn't want to have to have it in my window to get sun. So I opted for this stuff - Dense Shade areas. Perfect!
(sorry...don't stare at the picture long..you may just get dizzy)
Came out green though. Wasn't sure of that. But I figured if it works, it works! I watered it down pretty good at first. Then maybe like every three days or so I just used the sprayer on my faucet to get it a little wet. After about four or so days, I started to see little sprouts! I don't know why this creeped me out...but it did ... lol. I'm just being honest.
Anyway. A week later. They were growing beautifully.
I've been trying to incorporate green into my living room accents....so this was perfect!
And of course....its an inedible piece of spring...so even better!
