Growing Wheat
The look of the Russian countryside...
Wheat has long been an important part of Russian culture and it symbolizes health and prosperity. Growing your own wheat is a simple, easy project that will add a bit of colour to your home, whether it ends up on your window sill, on a table, or just about anywhere.

  • small ceramic bowls
  • 1 lb. whole kernel wheat
  • garden soil (any kind will do the trick!)

Add some soil to a small bowl, filling it almost to the top with a scoop. Add a generous handful of wheat. Top off with a bit of soil. Water and place it on a windowsill.

In about a week you will be a witness to a real Russian tradition!
