* Natural Easter Basket With Cat Grass

Every year, we grow "natural" Easter baskets
with cat grass instead of the usual shredded paper grass. 

You have to actually remember to start them at least a week before you need them.

First we line our Easter Baskets with aluminum pans. 
Crafty Recycling at it's finest.... (leftover from our favorite dinner rolls!)

This way, we can remove the trays easily after Easter and turn them into Fairy Gardens! 
You could also use round cake pans.

Cat Grass seeds mixed with potting soil.
Might as well grow something the kitty can safely enjoy when we're done...
(I think some people grow Wheat Grass for their baskets)

Find a safe sunny spot indoors for your seeds to germinate.

"C"'s job is to water our baskets with her spray bottle.
Yes... that was blue painter's tape on my doors, 
we were remodeling when these photos were taken...
this is old photo from a couple of years ago.

Our baskets sit by the door, waiting for some sun... and misting from little friends.

Tiny the snail gets a misting too!

Happy (Natural) Easter!

I LOVE this idea! I had never seen this before! I can not wait to start doping this. What a great idea to repurpose the grass for a fairy garden too :)

I saw this posted on FB,and I a made a comment that my cats would love this. Then I come here and see that you used cat grass. Too funny!! Where do you find cat grass seeds?

Hi Rebekah,

I usually buy my cat grass seeds at our local pet store (PetSmart or PetCo - in the kitty cat catnip area) This year, I found my seeds at our local "fancy" garden shop in their seed packet area.
