Large Hay Bale coverage

I recently had a farmer inquire about where to find clear coverage for large hay bales in our area. I think he is wanting the clear rolls that go over multiple bales at one time. Can you point him in the right direction to purchase this type of material?

Caterpillar worms in my STORE bought strawberries

What are those caterpillar like worms in my strawberries?
Little back story: got them out of the fridge and bit into one. Seen the creepy worms and spit my piece of strawberry out. Went and cut all strawberries apart and there were TONS of worms in my strawberries.
Am I going to get a parasite from eating a strawberry with a worm in it?

local wheat

What variety of wheat would best be suited for my local environment? It will be used for making bread on a hobby level. Only a small patch in the garden will be used for growing it so yield per plant is more important than yield per acre. Also an heirloom, land race, or one of the more ancient varieties would be preferred. I would also like to know when to plant and spacing. Please keep in mind that I live in the Mississippi River flood plane and the plants are liable to get wet feet for an extended time in the spring. Thanks for your help. Stu Perkins
