Our test bed is doing well, especially the newer cultivars.
The big news is that our planting of GLENN wheat looks as though it will be the first to harvest. A sampling of that first planting, now growing for almost 100 days, shows a height of more than two feet, with six leaves fully developed.

And that sixth leaf is the important Flag leaf, confirmed by the appearance of seed head awns (or beards) protruding from its collar.

Stay tuned. Four to six weeks until harvest. Glenn is likely to be the first.
