February Checkup

I walked the Newman Rd field today.  After a discouraging Fall and Winter it was really nice to see the field.  Despite all the problems last year, we have a good planting and there will be a harvest.  I suspect there will be some bare spots from all the rain and washouts, but there will definitely be a stand of some fantastic and extremely rare heritage wheat.  This field will have the most authentic Turkey Red offered in many years, I believe.

Wisconsin No 2 Turkey Red.  I planted 3/4 of an acre--maybe we can expect 25 bushels at harvest time???!

I don't think this washout is new, it's just the same one that appeared last October.  It will be fine.
