Funny that as the field I tried yesterday is called "30 acres" and even though it's pasture for hay it's rock hard. If I could get a spade in it would be wrong to dig. I tried along the hedgerows which produced a rather sad Liz 1st threepence but gave up as it's all just too dry. Half of the farm is under grass and the other half under rape so no detecting that permission for a good while.

Well it certainly is on pasture anyway unless you want to pee off the landowner, kill the grass, and have cattle and horses lift the clods out. :thumbsup:
But you could always take a mattock to a cultivated field if you're that desperate! :lol:
