Planting the wheat was only the final step in a long process of field preparation. First the field was plowed, then it was run over with a soil pulverizer, then it was disc harrowed, and finally it was graded with a spring tooth harrow and a long flat board.
Today, Farmer Jeremy is out in our second wheat field with four horses and a harrow. He hopes to have it ready for planting in a few days. One potential complication: Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for more than an inch of rain.
