August comes to an end….. and what a mixed bag of weather we have enjoyed. Not quite the anticipated summer month of sunshine, but a month where the umbrella and waterproofs were always handy.
For many farmers it has also be a race against time and weather. With crops ripening under a hot sun, on the occasions it shone, and the threat of heavy rains to come, it was always a gamble. Harvest or wait, harvest and beat the rain, wait and maybe loose a good deal of the harvest and hope the weather will improve… yes a gamble.
A gamble this farmer took. At the end of this August day, I guess it paid off. this harvest was secured… but only just in time 🙂
Whatever your plans for September….
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
