I posted a picture recently of a field of pink oil seed rape, and I noted that it looked simply beautiful.  I am ashamed to have to confess that despite its looks, the crop will be a disaster.  I must improve my agricultural knowledge if I am ever to become a credible farmer.  I have been told by the boss that it was early oil seed rape which was badly hit by a severe late frost; there will be little left to harvest.  The only redeeming feature is that it is not our crop.
