My wheat is all starting to fall over. Is this a sign that it needs harvesting? Or do I tie it up??

I have my potatoes in tyres and beans climbing flax flower stems.

I've planted squash next to some corn with the idea that they can grow down between them.

HI Sarah, you need to let the wheat go brown before harvesting. what will you do with the grain? when did you plant it? I wasn't sure if it is supposed to be planted in spring or autumn.
Make sure you tie the top of your bean teepee and shove the sticks down into the ground securely, by the time they are full of leaf any big wind will tip them over, I have learnt from experience! I just planted some squash next to some corn too, also some climbing beans in amongst it to add nitrogen and grow up the corn stalks, your corn looks big enough to try this now and it makes the most of the space. it is called the "three sisters" planting method

That is so cool! Your wheat looks amazing! :D
And I love the idea of using flax flower steams for beans.
I'm growing mine on a fence, was lucky to have so much of it to grow it on lol.
