growing grains in Western Oregon
I am a school garden consultant in the Portland Metro area (additionally a OSU extension staff member [less than half time]), and am working to plant some small quantities of "ancient grains" (top choices: millet (foxtail), teff, amaranth, quinoa and some wheat variety) with some middle school students this growing season. I have found a couple resources on growing grains in general, but am curious about timing (planting mostly) in our region. Ideas? Recommendations?
Multnomah County Oregon
Most grains go in in April - May.
For the "odd" grains, call the Crop and Soil Sic dept at OSU, they have several people are really knowledgeable on the "different' grains.
