Wonderful wheat

The “wheat belt”. Also featured, Pearl the cat.

This years Lawns to Loaves growers are a creative bunch. Though we don’t grow a lot of wheat, we sure learn a lot from it. Thanks for sharing your inspiring photos.

Come celebrate the harvest Sat Oct 6. Details here.

We’ll be threshing, milling, weaving and snacking… a combo not to be missed.

The wheat didn’t stand a chance, this intrepid crew harvested swiftly and with glee.
