Two fine days have brought the cereal harvesters out again! Wondered what the cloud at the end of the garden was until the combine emerged!
40 acres of cereal done in 3 hours. Luckily the wind shifted and they moved further into the field so we did not get choked.
My picking runner beans and tomatoes by the bucket full does not involve dust or complex machinery driven at high speeds!
I am pleased to record that I have finally finished mulching the 50 feet of raspberry canes. It was rather hard work as I first had to uncover the bottom half of the compost heap and then barrow the mulch about 250 feet up the field. I think it was at least 25 barrows worth. I have started on the various trees and hedges that have been planted since last autumn. My cunning plan is to reduce the compost heap to 50% of its current size and have something more compact and with a faster turn over instead of a sprawling mess.
