wheat grass

On 16, Jan 2011 | 11 Comments | In edibles | By All Year Garden

I got a little bit of a late start on this one. It is an old custom for the farmers in Europe to start a dish of wheat grass on Saint Andrew’s day, November 30th. The custom says that if the wheat grows thick and strong until Christmas, there will be a great harvest the following year and prosperity for the household in which it was started.

Old traditions aside, wheat grass is nothing but baby wheat. You can start your own indoors from wheat berries which can be found at any organic food store, and harvest it when it is about 8 inches tall.

Wheat grass juice, best when fresh squeezed,  is said to provide great health benefits from increasing red cell count  to cleansing the digestive system.

If you plan on making your own wheat grass juice you will need a special juicer that masticates the stems.
