How to Grow Wheat Grass

Wheat grass can be grown in a little bit of dirt or in water.. some people have used those vegetable trays that have the slots in the bottom of the trays with water in the very bottom and grow their seed right on the kitchen counter.. this guy shows you how to do it with seed trays and a layer of soil.

Home Made Fodder System

If you have animals and want to give them the good stuff and can’t let them free range ie like chickens, this is a great way of setting up a cheap fodder system he uses barley seed in this and I know many people are making this and feeding it to their cows, goats, sheep and other critters in a small farm. Sometimes commercial feeds can get to be quite expensive so if you have a place like this guy uses an old shower to grow his. There are other methods that you can use with seed trays and I will go into that in my next post.

I plan on finding a bag of seed to start mine for this purpose. My chickens I cannot let them run all around too many critters like foxes and other predators, so we built a chicken tractor for them. Fall is upon us and soon winter so this would be great for a supplement for any animal.
