planting wheat

we planted black eagle spring wheat today...the pacific blue stem and baart are a bit more cold sensitive so we will start them indoors and put them in as transplants after the danger of frost is over...we laughingly read an article that suggested planting the wheat in row with two inches between the seeds...we id not do this..we used the traditional broadcast method...optimally there should be about thirty-two plants per square foot of space which works out to one thousand twenty-four plants if we were going to be that exact...still we counted out thirty two sees and put them in my hand to get a feel for the amount...then just tossed seeds in the bed...we went back and raked the seed in by hand...and now we wait.
