What Can a Gardener Do In the Middle of Winter?

This is from Stein's Gardening Calendar. I plan to try this for my kitty!

"Consider planting a pot of ryegrass for your cat.  Fill a 6-inch pot with a well-drained potting mix.  Sprinkle ryegrass seeds on the soil surface.  Lightly rake the surface to ensure good seed-to-soil contact.  Water thoroughly until the excess runs out the bottom of the pot.  Cover with plastic, or water often enough to keep the soil surface moist.  Move to a warm, sunny window.  The grass should sprout in one to two weeks.   Water until the excess runs out the drainage hole.  Water again when the top few inches begin to dry."
