Winter Wheat Update - June 14

The wheat is “starting to turn”, meaning it has matured and is beginning to turn the golden yellow that people are most familiar with.

In a few weeks, it will be ready for harvest. Back on March 30, it had emerged from its winter dormancy, and I did a post about it, which you may see here. And on April 27, it had grown quite a bit and looked like this.   On May 17, it had put up its seed heads, so I did another post.

We’ve been having a lot of rain lately, and last night the sky looked especially moody,

so I grabbed the trusty camera, and took some pics at the edge of the wheat field.

I look forward to this time every year. I love the warm color of the wheat against stormy skies.

Sunset is also a great time to take pics of the wheat, so the next good sunset, I’ll take some to share with you.
