A Bavarian Countryside Quiz

Time to get your thinking caps on, chaps. I took some shots of the fields surrounding The Village in Bavaria where I grew up. Do you recognise the crop plants?

They are very common – each and every one of you will have consumed them in one way or another, and you’ll be eating foods that contain some of these on a daily basis.

No. 1

Crop plant No. 2:

Cereal

No. 3:

Field

3a

Grain Field

3b

(3a and 3b are the same type of crop, ditto 4a and 4b)

No. 4:

Getreide

4a

Getreide

4b

No. 5

Saat

This last one is no less common, but maybe a bit tricky to identify at this pre-harvest stage. Here’s a hint for you: had I taken this picture in spring time during the flowering period, you’d probably have recognised it instantly.
BTW, you can just about make out the silhouette of the Alps in the background.

So, what are the five crops? Who’s going to get all of them right first?!
