Restoring Landrace Wheat to Maine

Another meetup member and I attended the Heritage or Landrace Wheat session at MOFGA last week. I learned alot. Many of you know that wheat originated in the fertile crescent of the middle east and several heritage or landrace versions (all low-gluten) evolved in different directions from there.

Anyway, we both came home with a small supply of heritage seed to grow out, experiment with and share. I've got Emmer and Rouge de Bordeaux, for example. Would love to spread this around when I grow it out using techniques learned from Will Bonsall and Mark Fulford.

Would anyone be interested in some kind of information-sharing or report-back on what we learned?

I got some Freedom and Red Russian from Ellie a few years back that I have been growing. I would love to trade around. Is Emmer a spring or winter wheat. Both of mine are winter wheats.
