Here are some more shots of how they looked after the wind storm. I didn't take pictures of the oats that were flattened.
So I've learned some useful lessons for next year from this.
I expected one of the lessons to be "oats aren't worth it", but as an animal feed, in the weather we had this year (late, wet spring that went a month into "summer"), this was an easy, productive crop.
I'll try it next year to see if it works in a more "normal" weather year. If we get a more normal weather year next year.
