Farming Work

Now that it is not raining, the land work has resumed. In the last few days my husband has been busy with the farm work. He has been:

  • combining,
  • bailing,
  • drying corn,
  • muck spreading,
  • ploughing,
  • power harrowing,
  • drilling rape,
  • rolling

It is important to get the wheat & barley crops combined before they ruin and the rapeseed needs to be drilled so that it will have enough time to grow and yield well.

  1. I remember lots of this sort of thing happening on the farm, the bales were rectangular back then. Would you like to accept the Tree of Happiness, pop over to my blog to find out what an earth I am talking about! x

  2. Hi Louise,
    It is certainly a busy time at the moment now that the weather has cleared up abit. All the jobs have now come at once.
