A Gardener’s Spring Planting Possibilities Might Include Grains

January 22, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A Texas food writer offers an interesting suggestion to serious backyard gardeners who might want to move beyond tomatoes and other traditional vegetables: try growing grains. It’s not an undertaking, however, for backyard farmers, unless the backyard is spacious, i.e. acres. The backyard gardener with the space can grow amaranth, which provides enough for a hot breakfast, a side dish for dinner, a casserole, an ingredient in baked goods, or added to a salad. Other fairly easy-to-grow grain possibilities: wheat berries, sorghum, and corn.
