The machines are now frimly planted on Lincoln Heath in dry and sunny conditions. We took the weekend off to allow them to come on and struck in again on Sunday evening at 10pm. After a week or so you begin to get a feel of yields in general, and it has to be said that it looks as though peas this year will not yield as well as last year. When we get down on to the silts they will be too much straw and not enough pods. Not good for yield. Beyond there the next block has been in flower far too long , which is generally not a good sign. It looks as though I am sounding a bit pessimistic, not so. Just being a realist! On the home front, not to be outdone, our second duck has produced 11 chicks. So the maternity wing at home is a bit full now!
