Harvest in the Big Horn Basin usually refers to alfalfa, barley, corn, sugar beets, or pinto beans. Sunflowers, oats, and spring wheat are not unheard of but are less common. Our continental climate, tough winters, clay soils, and relatively short growing season preclude more decadent produce grown in more forgiving climes.
Which isn't to say we don't have olives, Russian olives, that is. They're not people-palatable, but our horses, goats, and songbirds are crazy about them.
