    Sidewall repair

    If it'd been major repair you'd see it. If it's a patch inside, then obviously only on removal.

    Field ploughing for flood prevention

    I'd show them the infiltration tests of cultivated ground as opposed to direct drilled. And insist on a site visit to see the water running off it, and if it is just the footpath tell them to close the footpath off in future years to mitigate against future arisings. The only time I've had...

    Sidewall repair

    That's a major repair. Get it sent away and done properly, for your peace of mind or you'll never want to venture far from home. There's a guy over here does them, was nice and quick but haven't used since covid.

    How to mole & keep fields level in no-till?

    It only takes me 2 days to do the farm at those spacings. So cost is very low IMO. I'm doing it because it works. The farm is drier than it's ever been, I don't see the point in letting it get to the point of being wet before remedying it. Keep it good and with luck it'll pay dividends. I...

    life after bread

    betty crocker gluten free devils food cake mixes are great, and her gluten free brownie mixes. Home made GF pancakes are great, just substitute with doves GF plain flour. I really don't miss out on anything, but the whole house eats GF pretty much now.

    life after bread

    I buy bags of chicken portions from tesco for the dogs, miles better than the tins which went straight through them

    life after bread

    There's a huge difference in gluten free breads. Most marks and Spencer gluten free is good. Warburton gluten free Tiger loaf is good. But none keep

    Piers got the push?

    The list of folk who don't want to abide by the rules isn't far from home in most of the country IMO. I certainly know folk who seem to think it's ok to pop round and see a mate or two for a cuppa.

    Fishing in Lockdown

    Yes, and not only will those who've always done it go there, half the country will suddenly become fishermen as it's a loophole to go out....

    Fishing in Lockdown

    I'm glad. At least I can tell them to bugger off home.

    Are any TFF members neighbours of Sarah Beenys house?

    Cheap, and burns like feck giving off some of the most noxious fumes I've ever encountered. Absolutely ridiculous building houses from it. If you're gonna build a country house do it right, and don't scrimp on the build costs. I doubt the massive mansions still standing had any polystyrene in...

    Are any TFF members neighbours of Sarah Beenys house?

    Is it just me that's horrified of building a house out of polystyrene? Thought that stuff was banned from houses decades ago.

    Mf Combines

    Yes mine had the back third done. Was fine for wheat, osr and beans. Could've done with deawning plates for linseed and barley though.

    Mf Combines

    My old 36 was written off because the panels and parts weren't available new anymore, they wouldn't do it with 2nd hand parts as they couldn't put the warranty on it. So off it went.

    How to mole & keep fields level in no-till?

    I do try to avoid 90 degree to the tramlines though. We don't have much drainage which is backfilled with beach so am reliant on getting into ditches or crossing the few which do have beach fill.

    How to mole & keep fields level in no-till?

    I go in between everytime. So start at 7.5m spacing, then move over 2.5m each year until done. Then shift to the side 1.25m and carry on at 2.5m spacing until the fields done, then shift in between again etc, etc . I have a few fields now with moles every 62.5cm. Having new moles at 7.5m isn't...

    How to mole & keep fields level in no-till?

    I mole every field every year. But I do every third run so I have a fresh mole every year. It requires rtk, and a will to make a good job, and some extra management because you need to know where to mole each time.

    Direct/Strip-till drilling photo gallery

    I told a friend that beans into maize stubble would work better than wheat. Nice double break there.

    Open fire in a barn with straw.

    A barn would be indoors, and it wouldn't be any different to a social club or similar, which are shut due to covid.
