Wheat Field Conundrum Solved
Whilst being a work of fiction I believe what he described in this respect is true. He described a wheat field that had been 'opened', meaning the wheat at the fence line was hand-cut a few feet wide for the horses to walk unhindered by the wheat (at the time the wheat variety would have been between 3 and 5 feet high).
Armed with a pair of sharp scissors, I cut the lanes and coloured the cleared ground appropriately with acrylic paints.
