Barley Harvest

The deer were chomping and birds picking apart, so I went ahead and cut the winter barley and have been letting it dry down under the porch overhang. Looks like a pretty good increase of the few heads we'd collected. No idea what variety this is - it was a construction site volunteer, most likely from seed stowed away in a bale of straw. Note the headless stalks in the close-up - those went into the bellies of the deer.
