The Great Backyard Wheat Experiment
OK, it’s not that great. It’s actually pretty small.
This is wheat, planted in early October.
It’s a small supply of hard red winter wheat berries raked into the soil.
What I find interesting is the punch of green, even in the dead of winter.
I have no idea what’s going to happen. Will it come out of dormancy in the spring and produce an early summer crop?
If you’ve been reading for a while, you may remember the first time I tried planting wheat. Sadly, that experiment was short-lived because we moved. These seeds come from that same supply.
Many of you are coming to The Suburban Farm because you want to know more about growing wheat in your yard. Have you tried? I hope you’ll share your experiences.
