I walked up to the Barleyfield yesterday afternoon. It is mostly nice and golden but in odd places are situated ears which are not as ripe and which still have their red and green colouring.
It was a very bright afternoon and quite breezy resulting in a rather nice ‘unkempt’ look as the very long awns were waving in the breeze. It’s interesting to compare it with the habit of Wheat which stands up strong and orderly!
It’s probably a bit further off harvesting than I previously thought so I might be able to get some more photographs as it further ripens – and hopefully one of harvesting too.
