Winter Wheat

About two weeks ago, the farmer who farms the field behind our house planted the winter wheat. Now its all sprouted, and about 4 inches tall in nice little straight rows. At this time of year when all the leaves are falling, leaving barren (and somewhat ugly) trees, and all the things in my garden are turning brown and dying, it's delightful and refreshing to see something fresh and green poking out of the ground, just starting out. Brave little suckers, that winter wheat! Can't say I'd want to spend the winter in a field at the highest windiest point in the county!
