We Plan to Grow a Loaf of Bread

Simple question: how much wheat do you need to grow a loaf of bread? 

As this blog unfolds over the next few months maybe we'll come up with an answer.

Here is what we are starting with:
1 bag of hard red spring wheat (Carberry)
Our starter seed. Thanks, Farmer Bryce!
1 snowy back yard
Saturday April 20. Our Future Wheat Field.
...and a swing-set that'll have to go.

The plan: build a really simple raised bed that is 4x8 feet, and plant the wheat in it. The farmer we got the wheat from figures that 32 square feet should be more than enough to grow a loaf of bread.

That is all we know so far.
