The smallest food grain in the world, 

cooks up as easily as oatmeal without having to be cracked

or ground. Tiny grains on dozens of big plumes

like those the cat is hiding in.

To thresh, rub between gloved hands and winnow in a steady breeze or in front of a fan. Chaff that's left can be removed by floating it off in water, at the time of cooking.

We recommend starting teff in flats and transplanting. The tiny sprouts look just like lawn grass and the seeds are easily lost or buried too deep in the ground.

You may want to start teff under cover a couple weeks before last frost.
