So that brings us to the end of the year's crop cycle. I've really learned a lot about farming around here by following individual fields over the season, and talking to a few farmers along the way. If you look carefully, you realize that the next cycle has already started, with winter wheat showing its bright green shoots, planted in mid-fall. It will sit under the snow and be ready to take off fast in the spring. So it's not just an 6 month growing season, it's a 12 month cycle.
Hope you've enjoyed following along on my 6 crop posts over the season, and perhaps learned a little along with me.
