planting wheat grass
I’ve been a fan of wheat grass for as long as I can remember. The idea of it growing right in my home in the spring was always a bit of a stretch, but I’m always looking for ways to incorporate it into my life. I’ve grown it as an herb and have tried seeds, bulbs, and more, but this is the first time I’ve tried growing it as a vegetable.
Wheat grass is a perennial grass found in North America. Its leaves can be harvested throughout the summer and are then dried for winter use. This is one of the more difficult ways to plant wheat grass, because you have to use all of the grass in a space the size of a box. The goal of planting wheat grass is to keep it watered during the growing season, but it also has to survive the winter.
I can’t describe how much I enjoy this process. The wheat grass starts on a bed about 5 inches deep, and the bed is divided into four sections. The first section is about 2 feet by 2 feet, and the second is about 3 feet by 3 feet, the third about 4 feet by 4 feet, and the fourth about 5 feet by 5 feet. The leaves are removed, and then the grass is planted in the space.
The first section of the bed needs to be planted about 8 to 14 inches deep to get the plant started. The second section needs to be planted about 3 to 4 inches deep to get the grass started. The third section needs to be planted about half an inch deep to get the grass started, and the fourth section needs to be planted about half an inch deep to get the grass started. When it’s all done, you’ll have grass that looks like the grain in your hands.
This is an interesting technique because it not only has the benefits of being a way to grow grass, but it also allows you to get a bunch of different plant types in an area. When I was a kid we had to plant a bunch of different grasses in a field, but we also had to plant different flowers too. Of course, the technique has a downside too. If you plant too much the grass will just go back to being grass.
When I went to college I got some grasses, but I didn’t grow them. I also learned to water them and then let them dry out for a while. This gave me the greenest grass I’d ever seen and I wasn’t particularly comfortable with it. That’s before I started planting different grasses, flowers, and weeds.
I think this is the same reason that you don’t see wheat, rice, sorghum, and other grains growing in wheat fields. We don’t plant plants. We plant grasses.
Thats a good point. I used to think that too, but once I started growing more grains, flowers, and weeds I found that I really liked the greenness it brought. It also helps in a couple key ways: First, it keeps the weeds at bay. And I find that when they are green they are not always easily visible and can be rather hard to pull out once you have established your crops.
I find that to be true. My grass is also a lot easier to pull out than my grains. I am not sure if it is because I am more inclined to pull out my weeds, or because I am more inclined to pull out the weeds and grow the grass. I think it is the latter.
Since you can’t get a good look at a plant until it’s got two leaves, you have to get the grass and the grains of wheat, then you can plant them together. This is pretty clever. It also means you can use the same planting machine for both. It is even possible to have a machine with two different cultivars of the same grass.
