Cover the soil completely with wheatgrass berries for thick and lush wheatgrass
then top with a thin layer of soil.
All "signs" lately are leading me to "juicing"....friends, books, internet sites/articles...even saw Kris Carr "Crazy Sexy Cancer" drink her green juice in a fancy wine glass, You Go Girl!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbRM2RAjgh0
The idea behind juicing is that there is no pulp/ fiber for your body to digest, so it makes for easier digesting and the juice can get right into your bloodstream and feed your cells.
I am now starting to grow wheat grass to juice. I have never tried wheat grass juice but heard excellent things about it health wise. I also heard it has a gross, gag worthy flavor to it (I do find kale and other green juices yummy so I'll let you know my take on wheat grass juice and how I do with it).... I will go slow because I am allergic to wheat and am intolerant to gluten. I have heard that many people are still able to tolerate wheat grass juice even with wheat or gluten issues. I have decided to go for it!
At this point, while I wait for my wheat grass to be ready to harvest, I am making a green juice
(kale/ celery/ carrots/ daikon or kale/celery/carrots/ pear/ fennel) in the morning and carrot juice in the evening. I will probably work up to 3 or 4 times a day if time allows.
I am making the green juice by washing the veggies and putting all of the veggies/fruits in my Blendtec blender and then straining it through a very fine sieve. I will make a nut milk bag soon (I have the fabric), you can use a "nut milk" bag to strain the juice from the pulp also.
The carrot juice I make with my Jack Lalanne juicer. I have been very happy with this juicer too. The only thing is it won't juice greens very efficiently, epsecially wheat grass...
2 great books that I have found on this subject are :
"Wheat Grass, Nature's Finest Medicine Medicine" by Steve Meyerowitz.
"The Wheat Grass Book..." by Ann Wigmore
