Q&A: Making jelly and Growing wheat — 3 Comments

  1. Stephanie

    About three pounds of wheat will easily plant a 10’x50′ plot. About the easiest way to plant it is to simply till the ground then lightly broadcast it on top of the soil. don’t get it too thick; an inch between seeds is about right. Then rake it in and walk on it to press it firmly into the soil. Water well and protect from birds and chickens. Wheat is very easy to grow.

  2. I have been curious about growing wheat too. How much seed would you need for a 10X50 plot and how do you plant it? I would love to know more.

  3. Jackie, thank you so much for the information on raising wheat! I had heard before that growing wheat wasn’t worth the effort but with the rising prices and possible shortages, growing wheat makes sense.
