Wheatgrass for Juicing
I have bought some wheatberries from a health food store and am going to start growing my own wheatgrass for juicing. I have several questions and hope someone can assist me?
I have looked online extensively but most info online is from people selling grow-indoors kit, or hydroponic kits. I do not have money to spend on that stuff, every penny counts right now.
1.) The store sold bags for $2.39/pound, is that a fair price?
2.) Could I use the wheat that farmers plant? I live next to a farmer who plants wheat, is it the same or is it different than I would want for juicing?
3.) Can I plant the wheatberries outside in the dirt(protected from the dogs)? It is about 60/night 80/day now, is it okay to sow the seeds directly in the dirt now (after soaking for the day?)
4.) If I have to container plant, how often do I water?
5.) I have a Jack LaLane juicer, can I use that to juice wheatgrass? If not, where can I get an inexpensive (but decent) juicer?
Thank you so much for any help anyone can give me!
