2. Purchase end caps or improvise closure for both ends (a plastic paint cover can be used, and cut in half as shown).

3. Cut the PVC guttering to the desired length (about 24"-36" should be ok).

4. Drill holes along the bottom for water drainage (the holes should be about about 1/8" - 1/4" dia. and 6" apart).

5. Fill guttering with soil (make sure that water drains quickly from soil, if soil is compact, mix with sha rp sand, add manure).

6. Sprinkle wheatgrass seeds generously along the soil.

7. Cover lightly with manure.

8. Keep soil moist at all times.

9. The Wheatgrass would be ready to harvest in seven (7) days.

10. When harvesting cut about 1 inch from soil to ensure a second growth. After the second sprouting the root dies.

11. Wheatgrass does not require direct sunlight. Keep in a cool place.

12. If you do not own a wheatgrass juicer. Blend grass in your blender with a little water, strain and drink.

Wheatgrass juice is a great multivitamin and mineral juice, and would help regulate blood sugar and cleanse you on a cellular level! Keep your cells happy and you're in good shape!
