Yesterday our 1st day of harvest! What with all of the bad weather we have had in the past few months my dad has been a typical grumpy farmer, but at last we got into the fields and had a day combining the winter barley. There is literally nothing that I love more than walking through a freshly cut stubble field, with that wonderful smell and crackle as you walk through the stalks. The dogs go mad too at all of the space and go thundering over the swaths of straw like horses in a steeple chase!
