Since everyone seems to be in the summery garden mood, I'm happy to share this little garden DIY! Wheatgrass is not only edible and super healthy (plus kids love it!), its also a lovely way to spruce up that tiny apartment or garden-less humble abode! To be honest, I'm just so happy its "growing" weather!
