The Combines Cometh

After sitting unused in Barns and Sheds for the best part of a year now is the time for the Combine to make it's mark on the landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds. Today is the first day I've seen widespread harvesting. For the next month and more the countryside will be filled with the sounds of combines trawling up and down fields cutting down the crops and gathering the grain. Country lanes will be busy with tractors hauling "Corn Carts" back to the grainstores  and then back to the fields to receive the next load. Sometimes on a warm summer's evening through an open window you'll be able to hear the activity long in to the night.
