On Wednesday a four mile round-trip walk from The Crown, Little Walden. At Sadlers Farm we crossed a field a curious patchwork of green and gold – strong dark green wheat and a stunted indeterminate golden cereal. Green and gold were mostly sharply divided, but in places merged in an impressionistic overlapping brush strokes. What’s going on? Different crops? Misapplications of chemicals? Very different from the flowing fields of barley seen at Quy Fen recently (post 29th May 2018).
