Flax in bloom




The flax has begun to fully bloom. It looks beautiful with all the flowers open. The field in the photos has been hand-weeded. The seed we got from California had some mustard in it. We paid a guy to clean up the field. Broadleaf weeds don't seem to like flax fields very much. All of our flax fields are pretty clean, except for the mustard, and one field which has wild radish come up every year.

  2. Yes, that is transitional. The flax has been doing so well we will probably end up planting more acres next year.
