The blond fields had me thinking of the Bible verse "The fields are white unto harvest but the labourers are few."
The fields were certainly white unto harvest but apparently the labourers were plenty. The people next to us at the caravan park were contract harvesters and said they could only find four days of work in the district because the crop was nearly in so would be heading north again.
I have added Finger Post as a locality over at 100 towns. I think it was the sign post at a junction in the road.
