    My girls love grass and with the snow coming... they won't have any! Unless anyone has had good luck with freezing grass to give over the winter?

    Oh they get those too! But they just go nuts for grass and I can't imagine depriving them of it over the long winters we have up here!
    Besides, just got us our first chest freezer! The space is endless!

    Just get some oats or wheat. It's easy to sprout a bucket full of it at a time. Takes just a few days to have nice fresh bucket of grass.

    You can also sprout sunflowers, buckwheat, etc. I bet they'd love sprouted black oil sunflower seed. I might have to eat some out of the bucket, too. [​IMG]
