PICTURES: Harvest Highlights Picture Gallery reflects farmers’ rain woes

A couple of days ago Farmers Weekly noticed that farmers seem to be censoring out the wet weather problems when it came to the Harvest Highlights Picture Gallery – but not any more. Here’s a flavour of some of the pictures that have since come in:
