Harvest Update by Catherine Evans :: 25th August 2009

A reasonably dry August has allowed John the chance to catch up with the combining and he seems quite relaxed at the moment, even managing a day off on Sunday to go walking on the Clent Hills with friends. This field along the Ford Road is unusual as it was planted with 2 crops – fodder beet in the centre (green) and barley around the outside – because the farm only wanted 5 acres of fodder beet apparently! So the barley has been combined but the fodder beet won’t be harvested until later to feed the animals over the winter.
