Easter Grass 2012

Last year my boys and I started a tradition of planting Easter Grass. Two weeks ago, we planted our grass for this year.

It is really simple.  All you do is put potting soil in your desired containers, sprinkle in some grass seed and rake lightly, then water.  Keep the soil and seed moist, not wet, for the next week.

This is what our grass looked like one week after planting.  Once your grass gets to this point, you only need to give it a little water every other day.

This is what it looked like on Easter morning, 13 days after planting.  My boys love watching their grass sprout and grow.  I love having a fresh, green, spring centerpiece for my table.  It is a win-win!
