The barley or wheat looks ready for harvesting.
The seed was planted last fall and the crop over-wintered as small green plants. Then this past spring it grew tall and set seed. Now it's brown and ready for harvesting.
A close-up. I'm on the edge of the field so there are some wild flowers among the plants.
France is among the world's top producers of barley, along with Germany, Russia, Spain, and Ukraine. The French use barley as a feed grain for livestock and for making beer. I'll drink to that!
More barley. Or wheat.
