ploughing

Preparing to sow spring crops

Jim Etches ploughing in preparation for sowing with spring wheat. The field has been growing grass/red clover for the last three years so the fertility should be good. It has also been spread with last year’s manure from the cow sheds.

In the background you can just about see the 18 Kw solar panels on the barn and the oast house – which we hope to  restore and put to good use soon.
