I tried to grow my own wheat and make bread, the biggest hassle was the threshing and winnowing of the wheat. I also could not grind the wheat well either.
Island Grains is a project to allow people to grow grains, harvest them, process it and make bread. I think this is great hands on project. This is the sort of hands experience I think is good for all people to take part in from time to time.
The Tyee had an article about their project.
I think I may plant some more wheat this year, say along the sidewalk and put up a sign telling people it is wheat. Wonder what will happen.....
