The Winter Wheat is Emerging

 I was happy to find winter wheat growing in the field. We planted into dry soil, Click Here to visit the post.
Planting was about three weeks ago. Since that time we have had a snow fall that resulted in over half an inch of moisture, plus a few spits of rain and flurries. 
It may not sound like much, but it was enough to sprout the winter wheat seeds that were planted. 
The air has been cold this week, but I'm sure the soil is warm and the roots will grow, now that the seed has germinated. 
As the cold wind blows, it's nice to see the brave winter wheat establishing itself in GriggsDakota.
