Harvest 2017

With the end of 2017 gone, I can now reflect back on our harvest and think how lucky we were to have a crop and that we were able to get it off in a reasonable time.

Each morning I would go for a walk out through the wheat crop and think how special it is to be living where we do.  We have vast skies above and wonderful scenery all around.   With a bit of hard work and a lot of reliance on Mother Nature, the land provides for us with a cereal crop we can harvest and sheep for market.

With 175mm (7 inches) of rain during our growing season we were able to harvest an average crop.  Late in the season the barley suffered frost damage but all in all we were thankful for what we got.

Enjoy life
