I have a fairly large garden plot (40x120ft), which would easily be doubled (or made even larger yet) Of the current plot, I'll use about half of it for vegetables. I am planning on growing as much chicken & geese feed as I can for the winter. I have about 10 hens, 4 pilgrim geese, and 3 muscovy ducks, and I'll geese next winter I'll have about the same amount (maybe a few more Muscovies). The current plan is to grow various root crops for winter storage & feed. This will include turnips, mangels, & rutabagas. The BIG question is what type of grain I should grow. I've planned to set aside a 15ftx120ft section of the garden for spring Wheat. But I'm wondering what other grains I should grow (FYI, I live in central/west Ohio, west of Columbus). Currently I am also considering the following: Millet Milo Oats I do plan on growing buckwheat and possibly even cowpeas---as well as clover (but these will be more for 'in-season' feeding). Does anyone have any experience with growing your own grains on a smaller scale? Any advice in terms of how much I should grow or what kinds of grains would be wise?
