IN THE FIELDS THIS MONTH

Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

Win­ter wheat is usu­ally planted be­tween now and late Novem­ber, and needs a pe­riod of cold weather after it has ger­mi­nated to en­able it to ‘ver­nalise’, or be able to form ears of wheat the fol­low­ing spring. Drills are pulled be­hind a trac­tor to place seeds in rows, and you’ll soon see green spikes of new growth emerg­ing.
