    It's raining. ?

    I can't be one to complain because we had a lovely 7mm last weekend but the wind soon took it away. But had hopes for this weekend tho forecasters have put us just on the side of any of the proper rainfall. So who has had meaningful amount of rainfall,,,,,,,,, 2mm so far and hoping for more

    What % of your winter wheat is sown?

    In response to the widely vilified AHDB and grain merchant opinions on how much wheat has been sown, I thought I'd start this poll. Remember to select your region as well as your % of planned winter wheat sown. One choice for %, one choice for region and one for the month sown (for the majority...

    Wireless weather station

    Any suggestions on a decent weather station. I’d like to be able to see it on an app on my iPhone and look at rain fall data etc. Basically I want to be able to try and identify drought issues before we’re in them so I can make better decisions. Been looking at the netatmo station but not...

    :oops: Eh up! The idea of starting a thread about Holistic management has been on my mind for ages, if I am honest. Lets start by me putting my cards on the table - I have NO formal training, NO books, and NO interest in starting big wars on which way is best. I do, however, completely and...

    When will it stop raining

    Been raining virtually every day since mid July, it’s getting past a joke, they keep promising a dry spell but it never appears. I for one am getting fed up, is there any hope

    Mod Note: New thread created by moving some posts. Haha - every second post on TFF seems to be about problems with townies, cyclists, dog walkers, trespassers etc etc The further from all that the better I reckon I couldn't cope with having non farming neighbours . . .
