Yesterday evening John finished the rolling that follows the drilling of wheat and oats. All the seed is now in the ground. It is a time of great relief and all that can be done now is sort out troublesome weeds and wait until the spring when the crop will need feeding with fertilizer. Relief floods the farm…
Sow the oats,
In a nice straight row!
Now all we need is rain,
So the oats will grow!
Roll the oats,
Gently it may seem!
Crushing all those nasty clods,
Seedbed like a dream!
