Harvesting Winter Wheat in June

Although it’s not a major crop in North Carolina, farmers do grow wheat here. Winter wheat is planted in September and October. In spring, the wheat grows tall and green. By June it has turned golden and is ready to harvest. I believe the unlabeled photos from the files of the former Department of Agricultural Communications at N.C. State University are actually U.S. Department of Agriculture shots taken to promote USDA publications, and I don’t know if they were taken in North Carolina. But I think they are beautiful and want to share them.
