I don’t ‘do’ wheat, but what is the quality of bought in WW seed like this year?

I had a lorry come with a delivery today, who also had half a dozen bags of seed wheat on. One of them had a tgw of 40g on the label, which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.
You’d surely have to be desperate for the delivery not to send that back? :scratchhead:

I’ve had some Costello delivered at 38, which is as low as I can ever remember . The Gleam is 51.

Got the last of my seed delivered today, however 35mm of rain since yesterday means it’s now going to sit in the shed for the foreseeable future, ffs 🤦🏻‍♂️
Ton of a new variety we intended to go big on next year delivered, after many unaccountable delays, yesterday just after 74 mm rain has completely stopped us for this year.

Same thing's happened now three years running - clearly there's a cunning plan in operation by the big seed merchants to identify small orders intended for multiplication, thereby frustrating the production of FSS and forcing us to spend 10x as much as intended with them next year if we want to stick to our currently preferred choice of varieties.

Still no new seed or dresser for farm saved

but had a look yesterday and a load of bg just coming through so will see what it looks like in another week as it’s swallowed this 30mm pretty well at the moment
