|Ready For Harvest!|
|Finding the seed in the husk|
Since our field is so small (32 s.f., or 4x8 feet) we kept the harvesting method really simple...shears and scissors! No combines, no sickles, and no scythes. Kitchen scissors proved to be the best tool for us. We hand-tied each sheaf (or bundle) of wheat with some yarn.

|These were the best harvest tools for us!|
It was fun cutting the wheat. We were surprised to find out that it was hollow on the inside! Then Mom reminded us that "straws" for drinking are like wheat straw, both are hollow on the inside!
|Three rows done, four rows to go!|
|Tying off a sheaf. We harvested 7 sheaves in total.|
|All done, but now what do we do with the stubble?|
|Having FUN in the stubble!|

It is exciting to get this far in the process, and we are getting closer than ever to our loaf of bread!
And that is all we know so far.
