It’s been a frustrating start to March as we have been waiting for the land to dry before we could start planting. We have even been dodging between rain showers, planting as and when we can. However, the weather has turned in our favour and we have had up to 8 planters with the polyethene gangs following close behind. They cover the newly planted crops to create a greenhouse effect,...
