Autumn Rolling In
This is a view along Crashmore Lane running towards our main farm buildings. The hedges and verges have just been very neatly trimmed, by Gordon. The colours this year look amazing and although not particularly cold I definitely have that autumn feel. The field work has nearly been completed. We will start overwinter ploughing a couple of fields in preparation for salad onions and spring barley later in the week. There is some outstanding spraying to be done, weather permitting and then the farm maintenance schedule will begin, this year we're targeting quite a lot of sheep fencing!
I have to start writing a talk that I am giving at the LEAF Presidents Event, in London on the 16th November, all about getting the most out my LEAF Membership LEAF. A little nervous I have to say but I'm sure it will alright on the night! After the talk I am attending a series of meetings about becoming a LEAF Demonstration Farm which is very exciting.
