Those of you who have been to our last two Strawberry Days may have seen our very tall Sonora wheat crop. It is very different from the mutant wheat our neighbors grow. Their varieties were bombarded by radiation during the green revolution in an attempt to grow bigger crops. Our neighbors tell us that the higher yields are starting to diminish in spite of all the pesticides and fertilizers they use.
So our very variable 5 foot tall wheat is not looking so bad these days. We hope to harvest it in late June. In the meantime I have to fix our combine that was making some loud clanking sounds as we finished harvesting a couple of years ago.
You can order stone-milled Sonora Wheat Flour for delivery with your box. Remember the 4pm Sunday deadline.
