Happy New Year and good luck to all !! Thanks to a generous gift from Ryan I have my first seed for this year. It's his 1803 Hoelke. Also, Ryan has gifted a bunch of his 922 seeds for the Farmers Competition weigh off. For those of you who don't know, I live in a farming area and all the farmers grow the same seed for their competition. The only thing I do is to germinate all the seeds so that the farmers start on an even footing. The 922 is perfectly round and has great genetics. There could be some Howard Dill winners in there !

Many thanks to Cindy for providing a couple of 1910's. It was great to have a patch tour to see these were actually grown.

The fall rye is growing amazingly well considering our terribly long wet and cold winter. This stuff is tough!
