So where's the snow?

Silage in October?

4 Comments

We’ve had a warm, wet summer, in fact a normal summer. As you know, I love to follow the farming season.

This year, there has been loads of grass, and some fields have been cut three times. I was surprised when farmers cut a couple of weeks ago.

Now we have a bit of sunshine, they’re at it again. Surely there can’t be much nutrition in it? Snow is forecast on Sunday, so there has been much scurrying around with bakers today.

How late do you cut in your part of the world?

  1. It’s very early for us, but most of the cows were scuttled into the barns last night. No more cow bells. But we’re smug as we put our winter tyres on the car last week.

  2. That grass looks so rich compared to the dead brown sprigs the cows eat here in Australia and the cows here still survive. I am intrigued that our weather forecast for this summer is the same as the one you just had, warm and wet summer. We do tend to have the weather that you have in the following season. Gorgeous snaps.
