Norouz is coming


Yesterday I went to the whole food store and got some wheat to grow for my haft-seen. In the picture you see my last year's lentis Sabzeh. This year I'm growing wheat for a change:-)
The New Year spirit is in the air.

P.S. How to grow Sabzeh
-Soak the wheat in water for 24 hours
-Wrap it in a wet cloth for 2-3 days. Make sure that the wheat and the cloth is damp at all time, but there is no excess water in the bowl.
-tranfer the young sprouts to the plate you want your sabze in, and give them sunshine and water and sing to them!!!

I think I am going to grow "sabzeh" for the first time this year. Do you think it is late? Do you know which grain grows faster?

Mehrnaz jan,, you're just in time, start right now! Get the wheat, it is the fastest I think.

ok sorry to bug you - i put my sabze- addas - approx 5 days ago. last yr when i did it , it looked great! but i think it was all chance!! this yr i see it growing a tiny bit but its very uneven... one of the major problmes i think i have this time is that i pilled up too much lentil on it.. could that be a problme? do you have suggestions? i live in vegas and its pretty dry here so i water it alot but im thining since its so think should i water more?
anyway, any suggestion woul dbe appreciate it - even if its " start another one!!"thanks!

Well, if it is too much lentil, you can't do anything about it now, cause the roots are all clogged to each other. I say give your sabze more sunlight, and make sure the roots are moist all the time, but not soaking in water.

It's a bot late to start up a lentil sabze, but you can try another plate with wheat. They grow faster. I got "organic hard red wheat barley" from a health food store this year and so far they are growing well.

Hi there,

I've been following your blog and I really find it interesting. I love reading articles from a fellow Iranian abroad.

Btw, this Norouz, send flowers to your loved ones in Iran via ParsaFlora http://parsaflora.com

Last year I tried to grow lentils sabzeh. I did everything based on my mom suggestion but the lentils only absorbed water without seedling or leaf...
After some days the lentils was about to spoil I had no choice except to make a delicious "Adas polo"
Haahaaa
