After the wettest Autumn last year, we had the coldest Winter. This Spring is at least a month late and the amount of rain has hampered our grow to a large degree. We ploughed our land in November and normally we would prepare the soil in March for drilling in late April, but the land was so wet we couldnt get on with machinery until Saturday 21st April. We called on the help of our neighbours to get the seed in before the next wet spell and thanks to them we had the 7 acres power harrowed, drilled and rolled by Monday 23rd. Since then it has been unseasonably cold and windy which isnt great for germination. As soon as we get germination we will be posting photos on this page, fingers crossed!!
