    Difficult question I know....but how long do you expect that to take?

    Average field size?
    And if it were just 1 year growth?

    These are spread over the last week or so

    I guess there's no way round this beyond daily checking. Higher wires would be fine when they the age/size they are now (all 6 months+) but when we move from the young pen or wean into here we need the low wires


    Do not use your nice pocket knife as a screwdriver (especially when it was a gift from one's good lady)


    Do not leave one's only nice axe in a bulk bag of wood scraps to go on the bonfire (yes, the head has lost it's temper)


    Some nice free range piglets decided to rearrange my spoil pile that was due to go back in this hole

    I love pigs, they've taken away the electric gate wire and dug out (i've boarded up since and then been back down and they're now digging deeper to get under the boards)


    Daisy went off for an overnight city break to have her under-parts fondled


    Hmm, deep litter is exerting some pressure here:

    Moving a few bits across the farm in the hope that it might rain enough soon to sow some grass seed.

    It’s hard to say! A long time!
    The sides take about 3 passes and the top can take 5 passes or more, I just take the thick off to find the old cutting line then aim for that. Cutting hedges annually is best, takes half the time, keeps the hedge close for nesting birds and all the berries grow inside the hedge behind the cutting line.

    Graze, it gets a bit steep for chopping , not too bad but have plenty to chop and short of top door grazing, i got into big trouble for ploughing this as its a roman camp , historic scotland cautioned me etc etc etc , all sorted now but spent last winter under caution and worried about court action, never happend and got written consent to cultivate this year , thats why im so late in the year with grass took all summer to negotiate.
  11. Will give the field a spray before winter out of interest
