That made me laugh :lol:

I’m looking at this scorching heat and have decided it’s okay when I’m seeing the crops ripen so quickly. All the cereal crops have moved on fast this week and the hay is now cut :Party:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Yeah, having been on a job a few miles away, the crops are noticeably further on than my local permissions.

When are oats usually ready to harvest? An interesting field (bordering my slugged game cover crop where I recently and surprisingly found a few Roman coins - see link to the video below( - thanks MODS TEAM!) has oats which look much more forward than the wheat and barley in Herts...

A 30 acre previously cultivated field of mine has been left to it's own devices for over a year. The weeds died back in winter but are now back with avengance, so dense and tall that it is impossible to detect! :thumbdown:

Farmer has started to harvest barley on one of my permissions (Bristol/Bath area) so will have some stubble to do battle with this weekend!

Oh, the joys of fencing with stubble, eh? Still, it's better than nothing. :thumbsup:

‘Nothing’ being pretty much the only other option in this weather! Everything too deep on the small pasture permissions I’ve got to have any chance in conditions this dry!

If you want to know how your fields are looking then don’t bother driving over, use this handy satellite tool. It updates every couple of days and, provided there’s no cloud cover, you can see how your field looks without being in the field. Worth bookmarking!

Been using that website over the last few days, very useful, I can see the farmer is now on his second field of barley harvesting!

Barley has started coming off in Warwickshire. Looking at it last weekend, I’d have said it needed another couple of weeks, but hey I’m not complaining :D

you could be right, we're predicted some heavy rain over the weekend, and these fields are the ones that flood. The other fields are far too early to come off - they're still greenish.

Just back from Surrey and in between cursing at various forms of the usual idiocy displayed on the M25 I was clocking the fields all the way up and it's all browning off nicely and one local field was actually being harvested :thumbsup:
