how many days to Christmas?

Our first Christmas tree has been cut, netted and collected. Goodness, I thought Christmas was ages away.

autumn cultivations

The sun is shining, but the air is cooler and summer coming to a close. The oilseed rape has been drilled and the plants are emerging so we're on the watch for pigeons that swoop in to feast on the young green plants. In the other fields, the golden yellow of the stubble has given way to brown as the soil is prepared for the next wheat crop.

Over the past few days, Lakes Field has been ploughed

Little Forest has been cultivated

Great Forest is rolled to break down the clods.
