I’m just going to drive round some of mine to check them out :D I’ll report back later

Just did an hours drive round 3 permissions. The hay is in :thumbsup: the ground is to dry to dig though I suspect :(

The wheat is 2-3 weeks away (in my expert ;) opinion). You can easily squish a nail in the kernels but they are nicely golden. For anyone who doesn’t know, a good rule of thumb is that it’ll be harvested within 7 days when you can’t bite a kernel with any reasonable force.

Didn’t check the barley field cause I couldn’t find anywhere to park.

There was a polo match about to start in one field as I drove past though. It’s right posh round here :lol:

Anyways that’s my update :Party:

...the neighbouring farmer to me has started too, but he always makes a point of starting early and prides himself annually on being always the first to finish his harvest... he is a right t**t! 😁

Yep, loads of it going on, was nearly written off by a 16 year old driving a Fendt and bailer doing about 40 round a corner earlier :roll: :thumbdown:

Pain in the arse those Viking burials mate, they would never of forseen the problems when constructing the mounds that they would cause, even the mighty Fendt have issues with the nails and gold armlets :thumbdown:

You think they’d have designed a machine to cope by now really. Common problem but still they struggle :roll:

They did cath. Last year the farmer fitted tungstone carbide tips to cope with the copious amounts of parade helmets stuffed in a Roman galley. Just a mare😅

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!

Is anybody else as daft as me ?

Ive looked at this site for my areas numerous times and the satalite image has never changed, always been the same photos since Cath posted this, ive just had another look and yep, still the same images,
so I looked a little harder and eventualy saw the calender and date that you can scroll through at the top of the page, what a dimbo, it looks much more useful now I am not stuck in June :lol: :lol: :thumbsup:
