Fields of gold. Not quite.

      The spring wheat is growing and ripening quite rapidly now and at the same time it is almost, but not quite, catching up with the winter wheat. The wheat sown in the late autumn, for all its head start, will only ripen a couple of weeks earlier but the sunshine and lack of rain is hastening the process and it almost makes the farmer smile to see it. Almost.
      Mother nature will have a few tricks up her sleeve with the British weather but we'll see what this field looks like on Monday because the weather is forecast to hold steady for a few days yet.
      High summer and high wheat but not quite as high as an elephants eye to paraphrase the song.
      Anyway we're in West Norfolk not Oklahoma.
