Mystery Grain

When this grass sprouted, I didn't pull it right away because I could tell it was a little different than what I usually see sprouting up each winter. I thought it might be a native "canyon prince" blue rye volunteer from one of our plants up the hill. When our neighbor mentioned that she was putting out seed for the birds, I realized that some of the bird seed must have set.

Now I am curious exactly what it is. I think I have convinced myself that it is common wheat (also known as bread wheat). If anyone has an idea about what it might be we'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post a comment or email us at ramshakcle.solid@yahoo.com.
