    Firewood price.

    Have recently cleared trees from a parcel of land. The trees are mainly Ash and Beech. We have limbed them and removed the trash and they are sitting in two large piles stacked by digger. There would be approx four forty foot wagon loads. My question is this, how much a ton is this worth?

    Drilling beans with a weaving topsoiler?

    Might sell the Claydon and look to drill beans behind our topsoiler. Row spacing would be 41cm. Has anyone bought the kit to go behind the legs, twin pipes generally, blockages and depth control? Spoke with Simon Weaving the other day but hasn't come back to me with a price.

    Spring beans or spring oats

    Had 110ha destined for winter beans but seed delivery way behind when we think it’s optimal for decent zero till winter beans to be drilled. Shall I order some spring bean seed or shall I plant spring oats, I’ve got the nitrogen in the shed and farm saved seed. I am erring towards the oats...
