It will not have escaped your attention that there have been no posts since the middle of last month. Two good reasons, lack of time and lack of camera. We have recently completed our longest season ever, 66 days. We would normally expect to be running around the fields of Lincolnshire for 50 days.
After what was a lean start in terms of yield, the rains came just right and the late peas went some way to make up the lack of yield from the early peas. By the end men and machines were tired and ready for a well earned rest. The length of the season means that for the first time for a number of years we have nothing to combine, which means we can turn our attention to 2012 straight away. Below are various images from the season. There will be more to follow as we update our website, which should be complete next month.
We were reminded what things used to be like!
Is there an Hernandez there some where?
We hosted a fact finding visit for industry representatives.
