I was fortunate enough to have put about an acre in hard red winter wheat just before the three week October monsoons hit. Just broadcast it, hoping that Masanobu Fukuoka's no till One-Straw Revolution transposes to Oklahoma. Its up, about 4 & 1/4 inches. In the true community garden spirit of rejoicing in a heck of a crop before its in, (anything speaks for a party), I thought I'd share these links while the thread on wheat and grains is still active.
