Well almost, this crop of spring wheat is a premium crop grown for drilling as winter wheat this year or as spring wheat next year.
The entire field is patrolled and checked by the farmer every fortnight to make sure that there is no contamination growing and mixed in with the crop in the form of barley or oats. If they are seen they are swiftly weeded out and left on the headland for the mice or any pigeons that may fancy their chances.
In around three weeks, depending on the weather, the combine will be in there followed by the baler. At that point the landscape begins to change again from the early summer greens through the golden brown of the ripening cereals in late summer into the brown of ploughing and autumn.
Time marches on, as always.
