Wheat 2015

Back in October or November, we planted a wheat crop for this year. Since we had decided to try to keep our inner field in the native grass that had started to grow last year, I thought I'd take one of our goat fields and use it for a crop, figuring it would be a more manageable size (I think they're each about 1/2 acre, while the inner field is something like 3 1/2).

There are some places where Winter weeds have grown in, especially where the chickens ate the wheat down in the south east (front right) corner, but we thought we would just post a quick mention about it, and show where it is after the majority of the Winter weather has very hopefully passed. :) These are from mid March:

And here is the latest look at it (a few days ago), after some warmth and gracious rain from God:

We pray the Lord might grant provisions from this, and we thank Him for the growth He has granted!

I am amazed at how well wheat grows for you all. I remember the Bunker's crop of beardless several years ago. It was beautiful.

Hi Mrs. B,

Yes, the Lord really granted a crop that year. Last year not so much for us, but I planted late and we had some weird cold snaps that seemed to stunt things. This year we've had some steady warm weather this March, so we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for saying hi!
