Growing Our Field Of Dream

We just started on the expansion of our Dream Rye field. Most of the field has been plowed and when weather permits we’ll go through it with a disc and harrow. That will break down the clumps, create a fine texture and smooth out the field and make it ready for planting.

Getting all the work done can take a week or longer, so we’ll probably plant in March. We’re more than doubling our acreage of rye this year, from 15 to 35 acres.

The newly plowed field of Dream Rye. Notice the large clumps of soil. They need to be broken down further before we can seed.
