Here's a photo diary of the progress. I'm somewhat new to grain so I don't know when is best to harvest seed but, since the stalks look and feel completely dead & dry, I'm assuming now(probably earlier) is the time to cut & store the seeds.
Please give me some advice.
Unfortunately I didn't learn till too late that I could cut it prior to seed head formation in order to get a grass harvest from it & to stimulate more vigorous growth in the same season.
