A Week on the Estate: Four-Drill Bouts, Chalara Returns & Grafted Apples
We’re halfway through autumn, and while our trees are taking on warm and radiant colours as they prepare to shed their leaves, the single-digit temperatures of our nights – and some of our days – remind us that winter is on its way.
Thanks to A.W. Smith & Son and G. Clark & Son (our contractors and neighbours) for their hard work drilling our winter cereals this week. At one point, they were drilling 20.8-metre bouts with all four drills. Closer to home, a very neat job has been made of replacing a damaged stone column at the Hall’s front door. A few years of Lincolnshire weather will blend it in nicely.
