My passion for heirloom grains was sparked by how well this winter wheat thrived in our garden.  

2017 Late Summer Harvest

My unusual spacing was planned to allow peas to be planted between the wheat.  A very small percentage was awnless with both white and red heads. I found this grain to be easy to thresh by hand.
