You can see right away the wheat is looking pretty good and it has really grown. The soil doesnt look as dry as it was on the November 9th pictures.
|Looking closer at the plants, you can see more leaves and tillers than the last time. Lets pull up a plant and look at the roots.|
|You can see this plant has a bunch of tillers now and lots of muddy crown roots. This plant is in good shape for the winter. Lets wash off the mud so we can see the crown roots better.|
|Now you can see the clean crown roots. With all these roots the plant should be well anchored so that if cows were grazing the wheat they couldnt pull the plants out of the ground.|
