We got lashings of pea-sized hail just before sun up on March 21. The barley does not seem to have been effected at all.

Barley Malting Spring Growth, March 15, 2011

The malting barley plot is perking up . There have been a few nice days in the low 60s and plenty of rain. The barley grass is noticeably greener than the adjacent grass lawn. It is also growing and the brown tips are being superceded by green. If all goes well, harvest in about 90 days.
