Spring has come early

The first date of spring is 20th March. It feels today as if its started early. Great action has exploded at PX. Sulphur and nitrogen and TSP is being applied by Sammy with the spreader. Chris has started cultivating ready for Spring beans to be drilled and is off spraying fungicides on to emerging plantings after winter. Tim Radford has done a wonderful job hedge laying in Dry Drayton on the new piece of land we have bought. It’s a wonderful feeling to be back on the land since being rained off mid October.
