Description

Threshed by the aid of animals and winnowed by tossing in the breeze, wheat is placed in loose-mesh baskets and submerged in the water of an acequia. Particles of earth are thus dissolved, and floating bits of straw and chaff are scooped off. After thoroughly drying in the sun, the grain is stored in bags.
