I took a used ice-cream container, and put holes in the bottom. Then I put garden soil (organic) in the container and added the wheat berries that I picked up at a health food store. Sadly, the wheat berries stayed in the bag for many months before they were used.
I watered my new little indoor garden and viola, I had authentic wheat-grass growing in my garden. It sprang up quickly and now I guess it is ready to use. I will cut some tomorrow and put it in my smoothie for breakfast.

I was looking at a web site on wheat-grass and it's nutritional value. According to Dr. Oz, it is a catalyst for making red blood cells. Wheatgrass also contains the minerals you need to have, especially iron. Iron is important because it helps to prevent anemia. Wheat-grass is also vitamin rich.
