Combining, Cutting and Clouds

As you would expect, in the month of August, the combine has been getting into some serious action. Oilseed rape and Oats have been cut and the 17mm of rain on the 13th August has allowed us to catch our breath before the wheat is ready. A small amount of hay has been made for the sheep and I thought I'd add some rather interesting cloud formations in my picture gallery. Enjoy!!
First to come in was the oilseed rape -yielding between 3.5 and 4.4 tonnes per hectare

Thunderbirds 2 and 4 !!

Oats look good...hope we get them before the rain.

Here comes your porridge ..oats yielded up to 8 tonnes/ha

Environment meets production

Sunflowers for September or as Green Day would say Wake me up when September comes...

Hay... smells grand

Sheep are not too excited ..lazing about

There is a reason they are called a Longwool!!!

Red sky at night...haymakers delight

What a bizzare cloud formation
More harvest and cultivation action soon.
