Alhamdulilah! We grew wheatgrass!

If you did not catch our how to sprout wheat berries post inshaAllah please check it out:
after sprouting the wheat berries we planted them in the soil :) and put them back into the dark until they grew about 4 inches or so long. Keeping the soil not overly wet, and covering them back up, for a couple days.
after about two days they started to look like this:

Then maybe four days later they were long thin and brown! The children and I were excited. Since it was in the dark for a good few days, the wheat was brown. Time to move to the next phase alhamdulilah we learned something important about Allah's creation in this process, and it became a whole homeschool lesson  mashaAllah this picture was taken yesterday. The first day out of the dark.

This morning walked in the room to this beautiful sight mashaAllah!!! How awesome and wonderful Allah's creation is. Not only did we have a nice two weeks exploring and learning about wheat berries, Allah blessed us to grow a food in our home that we can benefit from.
SubhanAllah here are few things I have read, and theres a link provided at the end:


It is said to:
increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract. http://www.hippocratesinst.org/natural-health-resources/benefits-of-wheatgrass
