Early Barley

Early Barley. I love walking in the fields round here – where it's virtually all arable farming – and watching the progress of the crops. Right now the barley is almost fully formed and the heads are starting to bend over. It's a delicate crop and the fields have been swaying like the ocean in the breeze. Strong winds have almost flattened parts of some fields and I hope that won't cause problems for later. A few weeks of sun and we'll be into harvest time. [June 2004]
