Saw these poppies off Keld Lane and thought they were worth a photo with the village of Carlton in the background. The crop in the field looked a bit sorry for itself. A few yards further down the track and I came across a sign saying that this field had been sprayed with sulfuric acid (sic) just two days before. Apparently the crop would have been potatoes. Potatoes are sprayed with a weak solution of sulphuric acid to kill of the greens in order to "set" the tubers before harvesting them. Setting increases the value of a crop of potatoes by making the skins more attractive to the public.
