Drivers Eye View

This is the view from the drivers seat on our combine harvester, (John Deere STS) while I was cutting Oilseed Rape yesterday. We started at 9.00 hrs and were stopped by rain at about 18.30. Had we missed the rain we would have finished that crop.

Tim, who usually drives the combine, was off spraying some wheat before harvest can begin on that crop next week. We now need the weather to be hot and settled to allow us to harvest the rest of the farm. We still have the wheat, oats, spring barley and beans to harvest which will take us about a month to complete, with a few breaks for the weather. We can't cultivate the ground at the moment as it is still too wet and we will damage the soil if we drive all over it at the moment, if it stays dry we will make a start later in the week.
