All of a sudden we are in harvest! The combine is plodding up and down the field, the grain cart is rushing to and fro filling the store and one eye is firmly fixed upon the dark clouds that encircle the farm. Then the worst case scenario – it starts to rain. However there is an old combine drivers saying…
‘It can’t be raining,
if you ignore the wipers’,
the sun is hiding,
behind storm clouded vipers!
I find myself carting,
wheat to the barn,
there is rain on the windscreen,
I shriek with alarm!
All of a sudden,
the precipitation gone
such a good job,
I didn’t turn the wipers on!
…and then my son-in-law, John, arrives back from holiday in France and jumps straight on the tractor. Good luck twice in one day, it could be my lucky harvest!
