I'm going to have to harvest it by hand. The area is probably 600-800 sq. ft. I'll probably cut it down with a scythe and then thresh it in a pillow case

Nice! What kind of barley did you use and where did you buy it? I have a friend who's looking around for varieties and places to buy seed.


Thanks,
Mike.

Do famous baseball player ghosts come out of barley fields, or only corn?

It's Robust barley which is a 6-row barley. The 2-row doesn't fair so well down here in the deep south.
