Tillering barley

The barley is now into the “tillering” stage due to the additional shoots that have grown from the original stem that initially emerged from the ground. These additional stems (“tillers”) also have their own grass leaflets and grow outward at a slight angle from the original stem. Check out the Cheese City Beer Facebook page for an additional picture where multiple tillers originating from a single seed can be identified, as well as another picture of the lush green barley field that has been helped along by this recent heat. Now we just need some rain!
