Magic10 (^_^) ~~ Hi Manoo ~ I thought you might like to know that they cultivated and seeded our field a couple of days ago. Now we'll have to wait and see what comes up! Ciao nick

Manoo Mistry on March 19, 2009

Right Nick,

So they have now.Want to put a bet?

I say Barley ( first thought was Rape)

What do you say?


Nick Weall on March 19, 2009

Magic10 (^_^) ~ I'll go for wheat Manoo, I reckon it is too late to be sowing for Rape, Barley is a possibility of course. It might be flax Heath but sugar beat is not grown in this part of the country, so its flax for you:)

All the best to both of you from nick
