I harvested my 2row yesterday, the 6 row has another week or so. I tied the cut plants into bundles and stood up against each other to dry in the sunny dry few days that are predicted. The yield isn't what i hoped for due to weeds and a bit too much shade but I still have plenty to experiment with. ASAP I will till the plot, add compost, plant clover for fall bee forage and green manure then in late fall till that in and plant winter rye as ground cover. In early spring I'll plant another cover crop then till lightly, thoroughly remove any remaining weeds and plant a new crop, assuming this years threshing/malting/kilning proves all this feasible. Also this fall I plan on preparing another area for rye, wheat, etc. I'm also cutting down a lot of trees to allow for more sunlight and air flow.
