Fungus are weird. Some lay dormant in the soil for many meany years and will have crop ups kinda randomly. I rember there is a fungus where I grew up that would basically be dormant all the time and kinda randomly skem years would just destroy a whole wheat field. But it's rare enough no one really did anything about it.

Mushrooms are definely weird and hard to predict.

You can use a hand scythe as well, or a weedwacker, or just wait for it to fall. You'll want ~200sqft per person per year*, heavily depending on yeild. Then there's winnowing and hulling before you get to milling. I strongly recommend not using stone to mill your wheat, bread made with it using that method really degrades teeth due to all the fine sand particles. Adam Ragusea has a really good video on the topic.

*: I came to this number with basic researching and math. Do not consider it the true-true, its just a stranger's recommended starting point.
