Is it possible to grow grass in a desert? i have used a silk touch shovel on some grass, and now i put it into my sheep farm so their wool regenerates, but the grass does not appear to be regenerating. is it just slow? do i need water nearby? whatever it is i just need to know :P

It grows in deserts just the same as anywhere else. I think the other guys post 'Its just slow' is refering to the fact that without silk touch, you would need to get it to grow from natural grass to where you are, all the way through the desert. But you have silk touch so it will be quite fast.

Fear me, for I am cheese.

What im trying to say is if you put a single grass block in a pile of dirt it will take a good hour for it to all be grass

I hope you kept the sheep away until the grass spread.  If they ate all the grass then all you have is dirt blocks.

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.
Stupid 3D..

My personal recommendation - put grass as an outline all the way around the fence, 1 block out of the sheep's reach. With that, they can't remove all the grass and it gives the grass the maximum amount of spreading potential.
