Canned Diced Roasted Green Chiles replacement

Does anyone know what type of pepper companies use for canned diced green chiles?  They are typically really mild. I am looking to grow, roast, and can my own this season and I am curious to see if anybody has some feedback on what I might try.  Ancho or anaheim perhaps?  We currently have 11 varieties of peppers started but I want to make sure I get the right type started before I run out of time.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Experience Growing Wheat

Does anyone have any experience growing small patches of wheat?  I am thinking about doing an experimental patch of hard winter wheat this fall using 4 cattle panels with 8' T-posts (wire topped) as the fenced in area (deer and goat protection).  This will give me 256 SQFT of space to grow a micro plot of grain.  Is it big enough to get enough grain to make a pizza? Anybody have any tips or considerations for this endeavor.  Thanks, Jason.
