Above: Local vegetable gardening and growing inspiration Roger Smith, in front of his hi-desert home garden.

At Roger’s suggestion, we’ve been planting red winter wheat this past week in beds around our house, following his instructions.

“Make sure you thoroughly saturate the beds you plan to plant,” Roger told us. “Covering with a clear plastic should shorten sprouting time, help preserve soil moisture, and keep out the deplorables.”
