    Not seen my farmer boss for a bit but my mate said his boss was almost rabid as they still had peas to combine still the pigeon shooting will be good

    I recall commenting to the missus while driving the A55 a few weeks back, "How it seemed a lot of crop had been taken off much earlier this year"

    Hello Doug

    *****, isn't it.

    We still have our wheat to cut. It's only 21 acres but the neighbours that do it still have several days of their own before they get to us. If we don't get it soon it may start to sprout in the ear . We were hoping to get grass seed in later this week but I can't see that happening now. At least I'm only a part time farmer and I can sit here in the dry listening to Pink Floyd doing my day job on the computer and still be earning.

    Think yourself lucky Jim, got over 200acres of wheat, 50 of beans, and then 120 of linseed to do.
    A bloody combine that doesn't really want to work properly and a grain dryer that still is not functioning properly.
    All the pheasants are out in the standing wheat and beans, on the plus side I'm hoping to get out for a stalk tonight as it's too wet to do anything else.

    They finished the barley in a break in the weather on Saturday came in at 14%, the contractor has a further 1400 acres to cut including his own. There's still a lot of standing crop around here... I feel for the boys I really do, my best mate has also just had reactors as well so stressful times...

    We have been finished for over 2 weeks. There are a few advantages to farming in the SE, not many mind.

    The shitty weather wouldn't be so bad if our produce was worth anything......

    I even manged to check the pheasants this morning without getting wet at all

    Hope things improves for you guys further north.
