3 weeks is a long time in farming and since the doom and gloom email for the 2019 corn harvest things have improved. The peas and barley have been combined and the yield was surprisingly good but, as predicted, all had to go through the drier and there are some very fat pigeons on Fforest !!. The straw has been baled and is tucked up in the barn; the stubble ploughed and the winter rape for the lambs sown. Still have to combine the oats and wheat - these crops are ready just need another window of weather. A challenging harvest .....
Markets this week: Rhiwbina on Friday, Roath, Usk and Tonteg on Sat (don't ask !!) and Riverside on Sunday.
Don't forget it's Love Lamb week !!
