This is wheatgrass. I can't stand the stuff, but my wife loves to juice it-she calls it her medicine. Oh, well-to each his/her own. This is planted and harvested in 10-12 days. I only cut it once and then I empty the square and plant something else. Since it's so late in the season and this particular bed gets little winter sun, I won't replant this square with anything. I'll begin to harvest and empty this entire 4X8' box for the season and when it's done, I'll add my soil amendments and let it sit for the winter. It won't be planted with anything until next spring. That's prizehead next to the wheatgrass-an easy and tasty lettuce that anyone can grow.
