Here in the south, we usually have a warm day or two inserted into each week, but this winter hasn't been a normal one. We currently have at least 6 inches of snow on the ground...not a blade of grass in sight...outside that is.
Every winter I plant wheat grass. It is a simple way to add a touch of spring to the winter months. I just use any available containers that I can find around the house.
Do you see the snow outside?
This is an old container that was made in Italy. Mom used to pick up neat little pieces when she was in the antiques business. The wings are all chipped, but I still think it is pretty.
This pot was given to me by a friend who has since moved to Seattle. I have made a few of these myself with old broken bits of china. It took a lot longer than you would think.
I am planting wheat grass in a strawberry pot for the first time. Not sure how it would turn out, but so far so good. The biggest challenge is keeping it watered. Hello kitchen sink.
Knowing that it is 13 degrees outside with 6 inches of snow on the ground does make the grass seem a little greener.
