Oh what a beautiful morning

Combine passing a Maize Field - Wiltshire - 9:00 am Sat 25 August 2007

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
An' it looks like its climbin' clear up to the sky.

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,...

And here is the field I took the picture from on my morning walk

This townie noticed the harvest was in, and the fields ploughed a wekk ago here on the Northumberland coast. The summer has been wet( fields looked waterlogged in June & July) and miserable, though warm. Often too warm. But it makes me wonder if the grain is any good for milling. I know the national crops of some veg and salads are well down, but can you give us a broad picture of what it has done to arable production in general?
