the stand of winter rye in my bed at the garden is pretty much ripe...there are still a few green stems in the bunch, however the seed heads are done and i wanted to get them out of the garden before the birds found them ( not that i begrudge the birds working at making a living but this rye is for the "bread from scratch"'s mine ) i took the pruning shears i had in the truck and harvested the lot...laid it out on the ground...and tied it into a a few minutes i will take it out of the truck and into the basement until i can begin threshing and winnowing this long holiday weekend...there will be more on that as the tedious process unfolds.
