Small Grains Fall 2011

Finally got the winter small grains in the ground for the next round... in addition to 'Black Emmer' wheat and un-named varieties of rye and winter barley, there's a big patch of my "Smooth Awnless Club". There are also batches of seed planted from the F1 hybrid wheats ['Black Emmer' X 'Kamut', "Wooly Club" X 'Spelt', and "Smooth Awnless Club" X 'Kamut']. I also tried to resurrect some old seeds that probably aren't going to be viable (no sign of life yet) and put some new ones in for testing that were purchased from Jim Ternier's Prairie Garden Seeds. They've got a lot of really cool wheats!
