Weather & harvest update

Rumbling with thunder; electricity in the air; hot, humid, and very sticky; threatening to lash it down at any minute.

Forget your preconceptions of Eastern European cold and perpetual snow, the weather at this time of the year is scorchio.

They even ban lorries from the centre of Kiev as the tarmac is melting.

Early harvest reports have OSR moisture content between 9 and 14%.
