just a very quick trip around a couple of places in the yard after a brief rain shower...the first two photos are a morphological study of maize ( first ) and teosinte ( second )...they are related and there is a strong family resemblance...the third photo is of emmer wheat and the husks seem to be growing lighter...and thickening and hardening as well i imagine...they were planted in may be that the season is reaching the certainly seems so for the pacific blue stem ( fourth )...that is ripening wheat and no mistake...they are volunteer plants growing from seed that hit the ground last summer at harvest so they are by far the oldest spring wheat out there...only makes sense they'd be the first to ripen...time to find the sickle and make sure it's sharp.
