Secondly, after watching the red stem color appear on the Vavilov and Pedigree No. 2 for just the first few days after germination, and then disappear, I want to record the stem color of all the wheat I'm growing. To get good observations, I need to see it the day it comes out of the ground.
Two days after germinating, a truly awful spring blizzard came through. Over the next few days the overnight lows were in the 20's, and several inches of snow, sleet, and rain fell. It will be interesting to see how everything looks when this stuff finally thaws out!
