wheat tassels!

I've been so used to seeing my unchanging green field of winter wheat for the last few months (see my past posts about it here, here, here and here) that I almost didn't notice today that it's flowering! So exciting! Of course with the incredibly weird "winter" weather we're having (today was yet another sunny 70 degree day) I have no idea if this is happening prematurely or if it will pose a problem once the cold and rains arrive. With typical backyard crops there are always lots of local gardeners to talk with about these issues, but I'm really in the dark with this one. I kind of like not knowing what I'm doing or what to expect though. It really makes the whole thing so much more of an experiment.
