The Joys of Tillage!


ploughing 1014I was speaking to a neighbouring farmer the other night and he said, “There’s something very satisfying about tilling the soil.” I have to admit that up to that moment I’d never considered cultivation as being ‘satisfying’ as we’re normally up against the clock or the weather and have no time to consider its merits…

I was ploughing the other day,
Before the Hurricane came our way.
For a while I listened to Radio Two,
Then looked around for something to do!
I wasn’t entirely concentrating
In places it looked like rotavating!
The real problem was that it showed,
The very worst ploughing can be seen from the road!
