Who knew....

 you could grow rice in Wisconsin?  Not the traditional paddy rice, this is an upland variety called Duborskian, a Russian heirloom. I planted it in anticipation of an upcoming trip to Thailand. Hopefully there are enough weeks of good weather ahead for the outer husks on the rice grains to turn a golden brown. Then all I have to do is figure out how to thresh it! As always, more questions than answers!
