Beet heaps

December view. Across the road one heap came and went and another has appeared. I can see it from where I am sitting. Trucks will be going back and forth next week to take it to Bury St Edmunds. There are still fields yet to be harvested so I suspect there is still more to come.


  1. Sugar beet means MUD! Everywhere - well it is round here anyway

    1. After a few days of dry frosty weather, the rain has returned today, so yes there will be MUD! on the road here too.

  2. I hope there are no rats reading your blog? I have grown sugar beet for the cattle and they loved it. I just chopped it up with my spade and fed it to them.

  3. I grow mangolds for the pigs which is similar.

  4. Sugar beet mud smells rancid in vehicles, all part of the job. No rats in beet heaps, they don't stay long enough, off the field and then to the factory.
