Most of the corn that is grown here is sweet corn for eating on the cob or canning.

Last week I did harvest some field peas that will be used for livestock feed, as well as some canola (for oil).  There is some barley grown in the area as well.  That is also used for livestock feed.

A week and a half into harvest already have 140 hours clocked.  Two more weeks to go.

If I may ask, what is being harvested word?

mspart

Soft white winter wheat.  I live in Central Oregon, there is almost no corn grown in the Pacific Northwest.  Most of the grain produced here is soft white wheat that gets shipped to Asia for noodles, crackers, cookies, and cakes.

How do you know the weather is screwed up in Oregon ?  when the farmers reap their winter wheat in the middle of summer.

Winter wheat was the last on my crop list.  I always thought that was spring harvest, but i guess the weather in the north delays the harvest until summer..  You learn something new everyday.

Which one goes with which town?
As a heads up, here in the Last Word thread, a back to back post, or double post as we call it, is forbidden.  Sorry we haven't been more clear.

Is this still a rule? Does anyone care?

It's called winter wheat because it's planted in the fall so it will grow over the winter.  It is usually cut before the spring wheat (which is planted in the spring), but they are both harvested within a couple of weeks of each other in the summer.

The only other last word thread I have ever seen was completely different than what is going on here.  On the jet ski forum I used to frequent  it was a word association thread.  Someone would post a word, then the next poster would post the first word that came to mind having to do with the previous posters word.

This is the only thread on this forum that carries the double post prohibition, whether or not it is your Last Word and carries back to those olden days on The Mat.   

8+ years and running as the longest thread on TOM's forum. 

Not a that BIG a deal. You won't be castrated or have your fingers lopped off for the violation, but you do owe everyone a beer, and personally, I dislike wheat beers.  Sorry.

Clackamas is the closest college to where I live.  I take our new club guys to a dual there every year.
