The last thing I want to do is to discourage anyone from trying to grow their own grain. I realize that harvesting my grain by hand looked pretty time consuming and downright crazy (it really wasn’t that bad). So  this week I came across an awesome time saving idea to thresh small amounts of grain. I’ll be honest I wasn’t looking forward to threshing this years crop in pillow cases like I’ve done before. This idea utilizes cheap simple things you might already have around the house. You’ll need a 5 gallon bucket with a lid, a drill, a long piece of metal that can fit on to your drill or a paint mixer and two pieces of chain. If you use a paint mixer it’s easy to attach the chain with a couple of carabiners or chain links. I saw this idea on one of Paul Wheatons videos of Brian Kerkvliets farm.
