    Right or wrong sowed the last 12 acre of oats today . Gone in at 175kg/ha. Field is on top of a hill and was ley , ploughed up lovely. Keep the crows out now and a bit of mild weather and I’ll be right, anything else and I was wrong!!!!!

    Nothing ventured nothing gained..... Keeping the crows out is the tricky part.

    In the words of Meat Loaf , 2 out 3 ain’t bad .

    Probably looks worse than it is. How long would it survive wet like that ? On the other hand , I expect frost would after wet like that , would be even more harmful.

    The Oats, sown after the plough with packomat with the Amazone disk drill, is well ahead of the non inversion tilled Oats, even though it was sown a day later.
    Any traffic after sowing pretty much stopped all emergence.

    Any that I have sown is only showing now and I’m afraid to go look at it .... might leave it until Monday and it might impress me more...

    My earlier sown oats is coming on well after a very slow start. The last of it is very slow coming but is appearing. I thought I had a picture of the more advanced stuff but don't. I'll see if I get a chance over the weekend to go for a walk about the place.

    The few acres I rolled have plenty of 6 metre tramlines from the wheelings.
    You can't win this year, it was reasonable at the time, but the cold and wet after was unusually bad. It had to be done, seriously stoney ground.

    I'm really pleased with how the oats are doing. The oats in the 1st pic are 9 days ahead of the 2nd pic.

    1st pic went in at 12st and pic 2 I upped it to 13st as conditions were a bit worse. Strong enough seed rates I suppose but I've yet to regret going on with a good rate.

    The Oats looks well in the sun.

    I think I only have lost about 1/4 hectare to the weather, if I can keep it around that I will be happy.
