A New Tractor?
The farmer is contemplating exchanging one of his tractors for a more powerful one, so that it will pull the slurry tank uphill more easily. To that end, today, we had a lovely drive over to the Lake District, to our tractor supplier.
It was very changeable weather - one minute sunny, the next heavy cloud and pouring rain. But I am a sucker for a day out - Tess is too. We came back via a completely different route, passing through various Dales villages.
I have taken some photographs from the moving car, which I post above. They are not very good, but I couldn't keep asking the farmer to stop - so I had to take pot luck. We stopped at a super cafe we know and had sausage and mash for lunch - it was absolutely delicious.
Has he bought the tractor? Oh dear me, it is far too early to say - still lots of deliberating to do.
