Farmer Roy's Random Thoughts - I never said it was easy.


Saturday morning job, flat calm when I started, great day for spreading lime+super.
Meant to pack up on Monday, probably the tail-end of what's hitting @TelesnaAg now?

Was still just cheesy enough on the edges, but I had the kids in the cab with me so we just took it easy; a nice new MF7615 to load up with. 21 hours on the clock.

The Merc just clicked over 1000 hours, complete with warnings and messages and all the rest - done just over 25000km now, and the tyres reflect that :nailbiting:
I don't have views on which are the quieter planes, I try not to use any really rather hard - in Europe Eurostar is more orient express compared to air propelled cattle truck. I try to use my bicycle rather than cars. My house is poorly insulated, soon to be far better.

I often get the feeling that I am alone in thinking that changing my behaviour changes everything. Hopefully by writing this is will make a small change. I can't do this alone.
We only get one World, use it wisely. Farmer Roy may soon be all of us.

I often feel the situation is hopeless & wonder what is the point

How are your sunnies going ?
Did they dry down naturally or did you have to dessicate them ?
Many insect or bird issues ?
Hope they do well for you
I could of been earlier as the first sample I took was 6%. This later side (in the picture) was less advanced so mixed them up to make 7.5%.
There was some bird damage but not significant at all. Can't write this to you but... It's been very dry and hot here since the beginning of June so not a good year for spring crops. Mine did just over 2tonnes/ha which apparently for the year, here, is good. They were after long term grass so I suppose it hung on to moisture a bit longer.
Looks like your having a great time (y)

Err, I shamelessly stole them off FB
Dunno where they came from - but I doubt they are Australia. That car just doesn’t look “right” . . .
It's great, either way - I made sure to share it around a few mates when we were getting our rehydration sorted last night.
(Showed them, and then had to message it to them 🙄 )

Can't beat rum in a can, really; fantastic invention.
