Unlike last year, it was relatively dry in the months of March/April and the conditions were ideal for the country to be manipulated and planted and sown.
The brewing barley (varieties Irinia and Odyssey) was sown this year on 12 April. In the second half of April the last potatoes were seeded.
The crops are all well started. There followed a couple of exciting nights with night frosts (especially for the young beet plants), but fortunately it has ended well for us.
But not only the weather is affecting the fortunes of the crops. The geese find the young barley plants very tasty and we find some places with afgegraasde plants here and there, but also the damage is happy with that.
