I Grew Wheatgrass!

I've never successfully grown anything in my life, so this is sort of a big deal for me. Look.

If you've ever wanted to grow wheatgrass, I'm gonna go ahead and say it's the easiest thing to grow on the planet. Every question you could possibly have gets covered in the instructions if you get one of those grow-your-own-wheatgrass kits (which is what I got) (well, it was a gift - Nathan bought it for my 29th birthday and it took me a year and a half to finally attempt this growth). Honestly, I think I waited so long to give it a try because I truly thought that I'd fail miserably and then have to live with the shame of never having produced life. (Wheatgrass counts as life, yes? I'm telling myself it does.)

Oh, and if you think you can juice this stuff with any kind of juicer to make wheatgrass shots, you'd be dead wrong. It won't work. There are special juicers that are *wheatgrass only* that do that. And since I didn't want to be the world's biggest loser and buy one of those, we just blended the grass in with our smoothies. (Sidenote: if you actually do own a wheatgrass-specific juicer, I apologize. You're not a loser. You're just beyond my level of comprehension and your existence makes me question my own life choices.)
