Harvesting Bere

| 1 Comment

This morning we harvested our bere crop which is a traditional Shetland cereal. The stalk will be used for bedding for animals and the grain will be ground to make flour and bread. First  we went to our patch and the big ones cut near the bottom with scissors and the little ones collected the chopped bere. After we tied the chopped bere into a sheaf and took lots of pictures then we carried it down to the bike place and layed the sheaf upright to dry and ripen.
