From wheat to straw

 

So the wheat was a failure this year.  In an attempt to let it dry out, which it never did, we waited too long and the rain beat the wheat berries off of the heads and onto the ground.  But hey, we have a large pile of straw, and we purchased and learned to use a scythe.  I was surprised at the efficiency of the scythe...let me tell you, for tall grass the scythe is way more efficient and enjoyable than a weed eater.

 

Oh well, I suppose there's always next year, right?  We will try growing and harvesting our own organic wheat again for sure.
