Why cultivate once...

...when you can spend all day hurtling around the fields having the time of your life?

I saw this (sadly all too typical) field a couple of days back which I presume was spring barley although at the time it was too wet to get out of the car and check.

Over cultivation before rain not only cost a packet but has encouraged the seedbed to slump down good and tight, all it needs now is the sun to come out and bake it hard, lovely stuff.
