|The bent heads are filled and ready to harvest.|
The idea came from Anastasia, a Divine Gardener, who's instructions can be found in the Ringing Cedars of Russia* series. She suggests growing a square meter of grain, making it into flour, then including it in a family meal as a celebration. My version of her idea became waffles for breakfast on the first morning of the new year.
So today the wheat heads were removed from the stalks. They will continue to dry. New Year's Eve we'll thrash the wheat and grind the flour. The next morning we'll add whipped cream and maple syrup for the finest first breakfast of the year.

|The chickens gleaned the bits left behind on purpose for them.|
They get to celebrate early because there will be no waffles for them.
