|The Ausir Mysteries – Bast Side Project Begins!|
Remember a few posts ago, when I had deliberately made a few more sprouts? What happened to them?
|A shallow pot, and some potting soil.|
I had a spare bonsai pot sitting around, but you could use anything that will hold an inch or two of soil. If you use something too light it might get top-heavy and tip over. Having a hole in the bottom for water to drain will help. I used potting soil that I’d already used for something else. For this purpose you could use sand or dirt. It shouldn’t be that fussy.
|Add the wheat…|
We’re not going to grow mature wheat, so we can plant the seeds more densely than they’d want as a crop.
|Cover up the sprouts with more soil.|
Add 3/8″ to 1/2″ of soil on top to cover them up. Then give them a good soaking. If your soil is dry like this you might use a spray bottle to wet it, or set it in a shallow pan of water and let the water wick up through the soil. If you do a full “inundation” all of your sprouts may end up floating.
Note that I still had extra sprouts!
|The next day…|
Now that the sprouts are in soil and know which way is up, they start growing quickly. It’s a race against competing weeds!
|Wow! An Osiris Bed!|
With the start they got from soaking, we get wheat grass quickly. I put them in a sunny window and this is the result.
|If you want to get fancy…|
