Pictures of the crops' progress
Here are photos of the crops and their progress. The soft white winter wheat planted last october/november is doing excellent. It is almost chest high and the seed heads are coming up quickly. It is surprising how well it is doing considering it has had no chemicals of any kind applied to it. There are very few weeds in the field, only some orchardgrass, ryegrass, and a little brome. The sunflowers I planted last Sunday have sprouted and look like they will do very well. Michael is kneeling between the rows in the field.
