Test Turkeys

I was basically horrified to find heads of wheat forming in the garden this week.  Where has the time gone???!  The cold and wet have really messed with my feel for the seasons.  These heads seem way, way too early, but they are probably right on time.  I hope they are free of fusarium, which can be incubated by wet conditions.

The Wisconsin Pedigree No. 2 is visibly further along than the Turkey Red.  This is interesting.

The Turkey Red has some heads but it's not as pronounced as the Pedigree No. 2.  Both of these test varieties are ahead of the Ehmke Turkey, however.
