May Wheat Growing

This is the third in a series of chronological pictures of a growing wheat field.

The above picture was taken in mid-May. The wind blows the tall wheat grass back and forth (think, "Amber waves of grain" in Katherine Lee Bates' "America") and encourages the head of the wheat stalk to pop out. Then over the next few weeks, the head fills with kernels (wheat berries). As you see above, the wheat then starts turing from green to amber yellow.

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen." --2 Peter 3:18
