Progression of grain harvest: wheat, barley, rye, oats, triticale & rice (2022)

Scott Hucker

I use this kind of blog to remember all the things that I think I can remember, but can not!  This year I'll use the date of the first major harvest, so each grain ought to appear one time (except for those I forgot to type in).

We received samples of this seed from a fellow SSE grower at a seed conference in late 2019.   I had more winter kill than I expected from previous grow outs, or maybe this location had more rabbit pressure.  It's a hull-less seed, hence, very important as a source of human food!
