I am not so sure, my brain has to listen to accents of all sorts and sizes all day long. I hear CPL much more than southn.

I cannot answer your too much question. My boys get couple handfulls of fresh grass, whenever I find some.

I grew up with people from all over and somehow managed to be one of the few people born and raised in Alabama without a deep south accent. I pick it up very quickly when I'm down there but it goes away. I'm still motified of how I sound on that stupid video. I wonder if photobucket has a mute option.

It always sounds worse in your head. I manage to merge accents too, depending upon where/whom I am/around.

Oh cute cute cute, they loved the grassy treat! : )
Piggy wished he can drag the whole tray upstairs to save the commute...

Here is ours.
We soak them overnight, rinse out water, than one more night.

We rinse the seeds (by now, tiny weeny sprouted) and transfer them into trays.

Ma ma always does hers on newspaper, never had a problem.
I do my on soil, because all they do is mold on my newspaper. (again, another conspiracy against momo)

I did 2 trays last week, I just can’t pass up on 2lb of lawn grass seeds for $0.99. :P

By the way, the jury has spoken; wheatgrass won paws down!

They get grass once a week, usually on Saturdays, because on Sundays, they each get a piece of fruit.

I have to go really easy on grass with Mojo and McMac because they 2 had soft poopies with previous grass indulgences before. (especially with each 1st cut!)

Rshevin--I have lived in Bama (including active military) for twelve years. Things are a 'lil different here than living in MA (lived there for twenty-one years)

**guess that give my age right there :P

Momo I love little Mojo!!!
I wish I could find some wheatgrass. I have looked everywhere. I guess I will have to try to find some online somewhere and spoil my herd.

Mojo cannot just go to Alabama and not come next door to Georgia to visit.

Just cannot.

I honestly don't see the delicacy in wheatgrass.
Momama made each one of us a shot last weekend, and I am still gagging and tasting it...
Agh! :(

Of course Branni, Mojo loves your piggy theme parky, and Meimei can’t wait for him to finish packing already.

No, no, no, no, no. Marsha can get all the wheat grass in the world but it is I who gets Mojo! I just love his crazyness and utterly lovableness.

The boys have really been enjoying the rye grass and are surprisingly deleciate when they eat. I'm able to put the tray in the cage for maybe 5 minutes and then take it out with plenty left. I do that a couple of times a day, being sure to provide a big handful of hay afterwards to help soothe any potential digestive issues.

Marsha, I can definitely see how moving from MA to AL, especially a more rural area, would have been a bit of a culture shock!
