    Dropped the kids off at school, took the Trouble and Strife out for breakfast, now I'm going to bake some scones and enjoy one (or maybe two) with a cup of tea. Strictly for quality control purposes of course.

    Nothing exciting.

    Preparing the accounts to send in to the accountant including getting some of last year's onto Quickbooks and trying to make the switch from excel as seamless as possible for the accountant.

    June return to do as well. Insurance quote to review. Records to update.

    Making a note of leaking roof sheets as well. It's been a good test for them. 40 year old fibre cement beginning to split lengthwise and letting drips in over my temporary grain store. Another job to do.

    Is this a 40 year old temporary grain store?

    Zero emissions target by 2050 to be enshrined in law.
    Another meaningless political gesture, while airports expand and medium term targets slip.
    It's not even worth listening to them anymore.

    Tackle gets bigger and bigger along with price tags.

    The scale and prices have moved so far up and away from my grasp that frankly it isn't even worth me looking in at machinery at Cereals.

    There seems to be two different worlds in agriculture now.

    Yes when put seed into soil,grow it, harvest simplicity that has prevailed for millennia seems to be totally removed these days?

  14. New kit is just for very large farmers and contractors. I am not sure where the future lies for small to medium farmers when the second hand kit is way too big and the electronics have become unreliable

    Been servicing the combine, just about done. Long way to go to sit in a wet field, some friends have gone, some on stands and looking at some of the pictures I am glad I didnt go. Rain just started here now, been a pleasant day, almost warm

    plenty of kit still for "normal" farmers, they just dont show it at shows for some reason, now whether the price is within reason is a different matter, our policy is to buy new, look after it well and keep it a long time, except the combine and 13 tonne digger which we could never justify new

    I went to an arable flora workshop. A few beardy types from Natural England there so I thought I'd fly the flag for farmers & agronomists...

    I imagine it would just about give you a brain hemorrhage walking down Agent’s Ally at cereals @glasshouse!
