Re: How do the crops look where you are?

Went on one of my 'Rural Rides' yesterday evening. Several bits of winter barley now done, and most oilseed rape sprayed off. Amazing just how quick the wheats are beginning to turn.

Combine going near here today in barley. For an hour. It's 18%! Its July 11th. FFS go away for a week. That's what Raggy would do.
