Barley harvest time

Last year, I converted a bit or our lawn to a mini field and planted Barley. Even though the weather have been really bad, cold and wet, I did get enough to make it worth harvesting.

Ready to harvest.

Even though six-row barley produces more grain I planted two-row barley. Two-row barley have lower protein levels than six-row barley. As a result of this, two-row barley is better suited for malting and fermenting.
