2 out of 3 ain’t bad

So far we have harvested oilseed rape and wheat. We got about 75 tonnes of OSR at 1.25 tonnes per acre and 298 tonnes of wheat at 3.75 tonnes per acre. In the farm office we are pretty happy with that and we just have field beans to go.

The wind has been very high for a few days and it has taken the leafs off the bean plants. The pods are still there and we are hoping the weather will settle down and in about ten days we can get the last crop, the beans, harvested.

Poor Parking leaves a red faced PC.

It was his first visit to Wimplebridge since the Christmas holiday and perhaps he was in a hurry or just forgot the importance of the engaging his hand break.

Either way he’ll be spending a few hours at the police collage in Coventry where he’ll learn about hill starts, hill stops and hillside parking. 

The year didn’t start well for PC Paul Tipton. 

Other useful courses for our hapless PC might include: 

  1. Form filling after an incident involving a police vehicle
  2. The importance of ensuring there is nobody nearby with a camera.

Never mind Paul, we’re sure your colleagues won’t keep reminding your poor parking. Give it time, a couple of years or three, and they’ll find someone else to rip the piss out of.
