This Monday’s theme is Wheat.
In the course of our daily walks around our home in the Essone, we see wheatfields upon wheatfields, still green, and in few weeks’ time, will turn into gold.
These grains are quite different from the first one. They have no spikes.
This is barley, it has more spikes. Barley is used as base in making beer. It is also popular as a health food.
When the grains are harvested, the grass is rolled into bales and used as feed for animals. It is also now popular as insulation in homes.
..and with some paint, it could be used as decorations.
