On March 25th 2017, Monica Spiller from the Whole Grain Connection shared her knowledge of ancient varieties that grow well in California and we planted Sonora wheat @ Soil&Water Garden. We also planted a few other varieties for comparison sake. The kids will get to see the difference between wheat, barley and rye.
We all learnt a lot about grains. Kids really enjoyed planting a row of Sonora wheat. We will watch them grow everyday.
Lets wait and watch them grow. We will keep you updated on the progress of the growth. We look forward to harvest and process the seeds and make flour.
