Monday 27th June to Sunday 3rd July
Our farmer neighbour is ploughing up his winter wheat. With the few drops of rain
we've had since March, it was touch and go as to whether it would ripen or not.
My computer virus was finally sorted by Computer Associates and I've got some catching
up to do, so perhaps most of the next weeks activities will be complete fiction. We've seen and approved
the latest plans for the barn and they will now be submitted for planning permission.
The barn plans have got me enthusiastic about starting work on the barn, but the Boss
insists that I have a little work still to do on the house before we start the barn. Spoil sport. I'm
trying to get my motivation back by doing bits and pieces, so progress is slow.
The winter wheat being grown in the field that we look out onto, has been harvested,
and the remaining stalks have been bundled into giant weetabix.
