There is something very satisfying about ploughing dark soil - you can tell the health of it by the number of birds that turn up to follow. Thousands of Gulls, Shochads are home, Oyster Catchers too, and there is always a “Willie Wagtail” close by. On completion it’s best to get in quick with the seeder as the Schochads want to start nesting. If I see a nest, I lift the machine rather than run over it - I’m soft that way. It’s a wonderful sight, once the seed is in, to see steam rising from the field after a light shower of rain. Once the seed is in, the next machine to visit is the combine.
Antagonise no man, for you never know the hour when you may have need of him.
