It’s been a while but I have been busy. In April I projected a start date if 22nd June. Whilst it has been warm it’s the wind that had really brought things on. So we started on Monday 18th and after a kind day shift we were into 24hrs. The wind has really drawn the moisture through the crop and there is an awful rustling noise as you wRk through them. Personally I would say we are in drought conditions.
Starting with some Boston and Anubis in the Sleaford area it all went well. A new machine and a few new faces set us a challenge but all us working well.
Greenyard were ready and the factory has worked well. So all in all a great start. Mostly AAs and As and the sample results in the Style suggest we should ease back but given the high temperatures that are forecast we shall press on up in The Heath.
Over 500 acres done, no dents to machinery and plenty of smiling faces. Plenty to be pleased about.
