What is really going on?

I have read several reports over the last few days on the state of the harvest in Ukraine with comments like “gluten is being washed out even as you look".

While they have had a wet time of it in Crimea it’s worth bearing in mind that Ukraine is a big country; it extends 820 miles from west to east and almost 660 miles from north to south and it’s blue skies and “combines are go” status elsewhere.

It’s a bit like basing harvest conditions for England on reports from the Isle of Wight.
