Raise Grains In Your Garden

I remember the first year we grew grains in our garden. A good gardening buddy dropped by one day early in July just when our wheat was ripe and ready to harvest. He didn't know that though. His reason for stopping was to show me two splendid, juicy tomatoes picked ripe from his garden. After a few ritual brags — and knowing full well that my tomatoes were still green-he asked me in a condescending sort of way what was new in my garden. I remembered the patch of ripe wheat. "Oh, nothing much," I answered nonchalantly, "except the pancake patch."

"The pancake patch?" he asked incredulously.

"Yeah. Sure. Until you've tasted pancakes fresh from the garden, you haven't lived."

"And where might I find these pancakes growing?" he queried sarcastically, to humor my madness.
