With winter wheat planted here most years, our trail skirts the fields.
Winter wheat is planted in September or October, and harvested in July. Thus fall, winter, spring, and the first half of summer are affected. No walking on the field!
But right now is the magic time between harvest and planting, and so guests can choose whether to take the trail to the treehouse or strike out across the stubble.
That's our good friend Bob and his grandson Sammy in the combine.
