Very smart place but concrete kerbs……:eek:

Be lovely with some sandstone…..or even sandstone coloured concrete.:unsure:
The concrete kurbs only in place for new tarmac Which is being laid on the 27th so watch this space.
The black tarmac is going right to the top of the kurb then the grass will in time grow over the top of the kurb like it used to ,so no strumming the mower will go straight off the lawn straight onto the drive this is the plan
worked in the past will work again and where the gravel meets the kurb it is a good colour between the black and the golden gravel And a distinctive line only 50 mm wide Will be on the show.

No spit roasting tonight. But we did have a good spend up at the local farm shop at the weekend- so most of that went on 👍to be fair it was a Costco special and it seems a cracking bbq . I’ll look forward to using it next year :banghead: it’ll see plenty of our own meat a whole lamb shoulder it on the top of my list

How are you getting on with your new cleaner now ?
Good thanks.
We did the beans last week. Playing around with the outlets we managed to get a dumpy bag under the good grain chutes and another collecting the rubbish. It does the job, we find it’s a 2 man job though. One bagging off, the other filling the hopper. We use a bag filling bucket to trickle the product into the hopper. I’ll get more photos when we do the wheat.
