Local farmer Ken offered a while ago to roller the grass once it was dry enough. Well after the inordinately long winter we’ve had, the ground has only just had enough sun on it to dry out, so a phonecall from Ken to say he was on his way over was fantastic! The wide wheels on the tractor meant the tyres marks would be less visible, and the 4 tonne water-filled roller did an amazing job! Now all we need is some rain to perk the grass up, but I’m happy to have another week of sunshine as it means we can get on with the ever-growing list of things to do! More sowing at the weekend, and the discovery of twitch (couch grass) in the proposed fruit patch means we’ll be siting the fruit somewhere else until I get time to sort that out.
