The dilemma whether to buy or grow is for me easily solved.
I grow by myself beacuse at the country where I live the delivery service is still not considered. :) Maybe bussines opportunity :). So I grow by myself on the balcony. Whole blacony is reserved for plates with barley and wheatgrass seeds in soil.
But I have little experience with bought juice and also powder. I can confirm that my own grass is much more effective
( on what based signs , sensors I am conncluding that ? :) ).
And more I can controle growing. I can assure myslef about the containment of B12...about purity and organity...
And I can also controle the best time for drinking or...
It is true that sometimes I am in the lack of juice when I need it. Sometimes I can produce so much that I can give to someone who might be ill. And there is lot of investment of time, place - specially if you're living in block of flat. But I still consider myself lucky because I can grow on balcony , sorroundings under the balcony is pretty green. And I can use that soil after harvesting for grass field and trees around the block.
I use Omega8005 as the juicer. But I belive that hand powdered juicer is pretty enough if you're juicing
only green leaves and blades. I am aware that self-organization and not too panic is most important when you include growing wheatgrass plants for juicing
in urban environment .
But it is worth. I am in the challenge of doing job and as the father I have to be able to make money for living, I am also study post-graduate study to euqipe myself for the jobs that show possible needs in crisis and train running and cycling mountain ultra-marathon as my energy booster. I can guarantee you that I would not come to that point after I was Ill few years ago if I wouldn't stick to ideas of Ann wigmore's book about wheatgrass and green living. Specially because I am succeeding doing this in urban city environment with urban rhytm of live where everything is traying tobe easier that you are able only to be passive in creativity and active as apatic consumer.
My respect to you if you're willing to be strict for wheatgrass drinking and all the best to your familly.
