The farmer has bought himself a new toy and as I write he is out 'playing' with it. Many of our fields suffer from drainage problems and although he has a digging unit which fits on the front of his tractor he finds getting up and down from the tractor is harder as he gets older. So he has acquired a natty small digger which does the job very efficiently. He has dug one hole and freed one drain this morning and went back to do the same with another damp spot this afternoon. Hopefully soon that will be another lot of jobs he can tick on his long list.
