Farm Notes

The Villager

Another month and little has changed – no crops have been planted and only a few have been fertilised because the ground is so wet. This winter’s rainfall has not been excessive but continuous with only a few drying opportunities. When I first started at Hall Farm my aim was to complete sowing of the spring barley by 12th March and the other spring crops soon after but this has not been achieved for a number of years, I guess due to climatic changes. The yields from spring crops tend to decline as the planting date moves later but one advantage of a delay is that the soil is warmer and day length longer so the crops emerge and establish much quicker partly because of the non- ploughing techniques which we use now. In preparation for the tractor activity I ordered 5000 litres of diesel today which should be enough for the sowing period but a bigger invoice than topping up a car at the BP station! ...

Hampshire Federation of Womens Institutes

The Villager

We met on 2nd February in the B L Hall, which is always warm and cheerful. Our speaker Mr. J. Pitman was a real joy. Some of our older members remembered the machines at the seaside, which portrayed saucy pictures “through the keyhole” and it was quite a relief when he spoke of the Butlers duties and the hierarchy that existed below stairs in the great houses. ...
