Farm Diary

The Villager

The wonderful mostly dry and sunny weather is continuing which means that it is ideal for insects, birds and in fact most of the natural world locally. Pleasingly the one species that will not thrive in these conditions are slugs – I have never worked out what good a slug does so do not miss them this year. The ground is harder than usual so wearing surfaces on cultivators are disappearing quickly. We now use tungsten faced points which do last longer but of course are double the price of standard items. The flints in the soil in this area tend to cut into the steel and tungsten so that nothing lasts long – in the days when we ploughed a set of plough points might need replacing after 2 days work. The term “Hampshire diamond” obviously refers to the hardness of our local stone – a shame it is not worth as much as jewellery diamonds. When I worked in the Cotswolds the soil and stone was much softer and a set of points could last a whole season or more. ...
