Full Moon

By Peter Lundgren, The Farmer

The field is ploughed and rolled and waiting for final cultivation and sowing on the 1st October. The weather is glorious during the day with mists rolling out of the waterways and over the farmland at night. Last night was especially atmospheric with the eclipse of the supermoon – and yes I did get up at 3am to see it!

Some people believe that planting after a full moon in the third quarter is a good time for sowing winter crops so, if they are right, things couldn’t be better for sowing the wheat this week.

And I saw this hare while I was ploughing the rape stubbles in ready for the wheat crop. Didn’t seem to be worried by the tractor and plough trundling past!

Please feel free to read through questions and responses from the Field of Wheat collective members and the Farmer.
