Planting

As I have driven around this week lots of farmers are starting their planting and in some areas the seeds are germinating in the fields. The rain today has been welcome and we too are turning our thoughts to planting our winter wheat. It is probably to late for the oil seed rape so that will have to wait until spring.

All the harvesting is completed. We were really lucky that the weather turned when it did and we had a could of really good weeks of weather. Now to think about planting

Harvesting

The combines are here but the yield of wheat is very disappointing, but looking forward to when it is all safely gathered in.
