Progression of fall grain planting (2021)

Scott Hucker


Back Field:

I plan to use the relatively clean sandy loam from the garlic/onions for growing some of our new 'test' grains.


North of the Barn:

Plan to put another plot of Sangaste Rye, Sardinian Barley (or some other brewing barley) and an awned wheat.  This area is easy pickings for rabbits, so, I'll have to set up a chicken wire fence.


Silo Garden is the first section to be planted:

September 21

Rain, or I could have finished the last bit

At this point, we've hand planted 6000 feet of row length... relaxing...

I see the Sangaste Rye is emerging.   The grouping in this most southern strip is to put barley that was cut on June 24 of this year into a single area so I can follow the barley harvest with a planting of Gaspe corn.


Pike Barley (BF-91) This six-row awned Barley developed in Indiana is useful for double cropping with soybean 

Bai Chin Ke Barley (BF-76) 

Zou Xian Song Mang Da Mai Barley  (BF-98) A Wisconsin seed steward


September 10?

Sangaste Rye



LaPorte Wheat (which should be awned), reminds me a bit of Banatka.
