The Season of Growing

This time of year is an important time of year for the crops. The warm weather we have been having is helping the crops to finish growing and mature.
The other day I took a walk alongside one of the fields with barley growing.

I cannot really create the waving effect of the wind waving the heads.

It has still some way to go before it will be ready to harvest.

The potatoes are also looking good and have benefited from both the rain and sunshine.

On looking closer the potato flowers are just coming out although obviously it is what is out of sight underground that is most important!

Fingers crossed for a good crop.
