Spring oats

What a weekend, we are all knackered – I can hardly summons up the strength to type. One of the first things we did Saturday was check the Oats crop and see if there was any sign of life. I wasn’t expecting much, maybe a few indications that we were getting some germination. I was a little surprised to see it had not only germinated but was standing about 2 inches high all across the paddock.
Next I suppose we need to look at how much the kangaroos are going to affect the crop and what I can do about it. The crop across the river dosen't get any kangaroos so maybe the railway line will act as a barrier.
