We have seen several fields of hemp around this part of the world this year.

presumably to make into cold-pressed oil?

The first field we saw we got quite excited thinking it was being grown for the class B market. Then after we kept seeing it BS wiki-ed hemp and found that it's a very versatile crop with multiple uses. I don't remember seeing it anywhere else like this except for at the Eden Project some years ago.

I personally love them, aesthetically. And these look so verdant and exuberant!

Great shots! Very-low THC hemp is being increasingly grown in the UK for fibres. If the fibres are processed correctly then they could be competitive with cotton - but produced domestically and with far less environmentally-damaging inputs. The lab I used to work in at Leeds had an interest in hemp research. Always made the place smell like an undergrad dorm-room!

Interesting... Maybe we'll be seeing more and more of it.

Beautiful! I wish it could be grown here. It's legal to grow hemp in ND, but it doesn't stop the DEA from raiding the two farms trying to do it and destroying the crops. :eyeroll:

It's a good rotation crop, it's great for restoring soil.

There's an article in this week's local paper (front page) about the hemp hereabouts being raided. Not by the cops though!!!

A link to the BBC Surrey site about our local hemp fields. Please note their photo ain't as good as mine... : )
