Harvest is underway


Well I haven't 'flogged the blog' for a long time! It has been severely neglected over the past 2 years. Basically, the internet was so slow I just lost interest, it was too hard!

The new NBN satellite is much quicker, not perfect and still not enough download for what we want to spend, but still, things are better.

Harvest is cruising along, it took ages to get going due to spring rains that left the crop green and not ready for reaping at the usual time- which is a good complaint!

Wheat in pictures below is still to be harvested but we'll get there!

So our input costs are more than last year, but the price we get for our grain this year is significantly less than the prices over the past few years. 

It's quite disheartening when you have some good yielding crops for a change, but the price is such that our gross income will be down due to world grain prices. #farmers are #gamblers
