Fields of Gold 2018

The Harvest of 2018 is interesting. We have had a long, dry and increasingly hot summer, and grain is being harvested earlier than usual. The early winter was dry, but a severe cold spell set in late with some snow. The reservoirs are low and we are short of water.

Despite the absence of summer rains it has grown well, and matured normally, at least in Lincolnshire, and might be a high quality, if low weight yield. Unlike other years there are no bald patches caused by cold, wet, or poor germination, and no areas beaten flat by thunderstorms.

I am concerned that this sort of summer may become more common, and after more such summers the harvest may never look like this again. So I have started a small photographic project to record what I can of 2018.

My effort was cut short by torrential thunderstorms on 27th of July, the first rain for at least 35 days.
