Well, I was none the wiser, but certainly something had been planted here.   Or was it a weed that had come up after a crop had finished?   It did not seem possible when I compare with all the other paddocks that had been left after a crop.    No, I think this is the crop that was planted.

What is your verdict?

On my return, I wondered how I would get closer to the brown paddock.  Then I saw a fence that would easy to get over.   And I did.   Can you see the fence?

Has the farmer planted a grass around his crop to protect it from cross-pollination?

What do you think?   Does it look like this to you?    

I have tried to enlarge these pictures, but they are still not clear enough to be certain. I think I can see these weeds at the edge of the paddock.  Look at the next picture.

When I go past next time I will have my camera and do a closeup.  Then I can be certain.  But fancy a whole paddock of these tares or weeds!     I took the pictures of them in my paddock.  I had better cut them down or they will multiply and I don't want a whole paddock of these.

When I came past in the afternoon I could see that the paddock has been reaped!

Well, problem of the brown paddock solved, except for the name of the crop.   One day I might find out.  It has been an interesting exercise.

I could now see what it was not, but what was it?

These are all the remains after a harvest or plowed ground that has been left standing.    But the brown paddock below.....

It looks different.....

Well, well.   Surprises every day.   When I drove past the brown paddock in the morning I noticed there were sheep on it.    They are a bit hard to see in the picture below, but there are sheep on that paddock. I knew something must be different about it, but could not stop as I had a meeting to take.

This is the brown paddock.   You may have seen it once before, but this page is looking at it a little more closely, although the real close look is yet to come.

I saw it while I was photographing for the harvest pages, but then I did not take too much notice of it.   But since driving past it every second week, I began to wonder what it is.    Certainly it is very dense.   Is it a crop?   At first I thought it was the remains of a crop, as I had seen brown tare-remains before.   Here are some of them below.​

And yet, look around the trees.  Weeds would grow right up to the tree!!!!

Until next time.....................................................................

This is as close as I could get, and I think I can see what it is.  Not certain, but it looks to me like this ------

This yellow grass also fascinates me.   It seems to surround the whole of the brown paddock as far as I can see.    It is a lovely grass, about a metre or four feet high. Those measurements aren't equal, but you get the idea.   

And I think the yellow grass is also planted!

The leaves look a bit like plantain leaves, although there were few to compare, and I am not that good on recognising herbs.    But maybe these are a herb and the farmer is waiting to gather the seeds!

Well, I was WRONG!   It was not the tare or weed I thought it was.  A big surprise.

When I drove past early in the morning, it still looked like it had always looked, but as I was going to a meeting, I could not stop, except to take a few photos as I drove past.  I tried to get some closeups, but they did not work.
