We have completed the drilling of Spring barley,Spring Wheat and Sugar beet in the last day or so.We have also nearly finished planting potatoes. The seedbeds for these crops were some of the worst we have seen in recent years.. !! The almost complete lack of frost over the winter, coupled with high rainfall resulted in very difficult conditions for creating seedbeds. Over the next month or so I will be developing new pages on this site to detail the husbandry and growing of all the crops at Westmoor. These pages will remain with the site throughout. As this diary progresses during the year it will often link back to the husbandry pages and thus make more sense of the diary. Hopefully…!!!!
