Eat Your Wheaties

When the squirrels started to discover our wheat crop, we knew that it was ripe and ready to harvest. We went out the the field with spades and twine, tying up little bundles and under cutting the grass. Once it was dry, we threshed the grain off of the stalk, winnowed the seed with the wind and a winnowing basket, ground it into flour, and made mall style pretzels in our cob oven... mmm good!
