With all due respect...I am going to say it again...Please be careful with blood and bone meal.colin said:Hello
1) Drain the soil well and blend in compost. Add a pound of blood meal and bone meal per 100 square feet.
2) Plant your wheat berries three weeks before winter so the winter rains can water your crop. October is the best time if you live in the west. Colder climates require planting in March.
3) Scatter lb. of grain seeds per 100 square feet of prepared soil. Use a rake to blend the seeds into the soil, making sure to bury them deep. This keeps the wheat stalks from falling down when they are fully grown.
4) Water the soil thoroughly at least once a week, especially if rain is scarce.
5) Place small stakes around the crop area and attach bird netting to keep the cats away.
6) Pull weeds regularly while the grain seeds are sprouting. Weeds look similar to grain shoots, and can overtake the crop.
7) Tie up the wheat stalks with twine when they are 2 feet high to protect them from heavy winds. Use stakes around the crop perimeter to support the twine.
8) Continue watering the grain until the grain heads turn brown. Once the wheat berries are too hard to bite through, the wheat is ripe for harvest.
