Wisconsin Wheat


My grandfather planted and harvested wheat on this farm but only in the past few years has wheat been successfully grown. This is winter wheat, specially bred to be shorter and therefore more easily harvested. Here it is still very green, it was just beginning to turn that lovely golden color associated with wheat. In another two or three weeks with a lot of sunshine, it will be ready for harvest. This photo shows some of the mist rising from the Kickapoo river, billed as the crookedest river in the world. I’m not sure that is really true but it does have a lot of twists and turns and was over flood stage–rather late in the year but due to the uncommonly rainy spring.
