This is the view to the rear of our holding today. The farmer has just finished combining a field of rye. The straw bales are the large ones, about 2.4m in length and weigh about 500kg, often known as Hesston bales. The bales were in the process of being collected. They go to a nearby livestock farmer and eventually return sometime later as manure to be spread on the fields in the Winter.
There is not a day that I do not look across this field and watch it change through the seasons. In a month or two it will be brown and soon after that flush with fresh green.
