When the lawn stops growing you know it's dry. Haven't touched it for a month.It’s amazing the variations we have in weather on such a relitavly small island. Ground is burning up here and its not grown much in 2 weeks and nearly everybody has been cutting and baleing rushes. Parents place by the coast looks like half the fields have been glyphosated No need to worry about hitting any rocks if there was silage to be cut, they all have a 3m exclusion zone around them
Glorious heavy rain now. Slurry and fertiliser on yesterday.Thank goodness it has started raining here washed the dust of the grass wet couple of days I hope
Where abouts a are u seem a normal one here with what looks like an early sept finish. Certainly looks earlier than the 17th sept finish in spring barley of last yearOnly 70 acres left to cut! The dew is terrible at the moment and things just don't seem to be drying. We managed a few yards yesterday before it rained again!
Last year harvest was wrapped up by the 14th of August, not much we can do but just wish we could get that one elusive day and finish!!
