Were my eyes deceiving me?


Recommended Posts

Driving along in the sunshine today I did a double take. I felt sure I had passed a baler with swathed rows in the field. It bothered me so much that I turned round and headed back to the field.

Sure enough, a chap with a baler about to bale the swaths. He told me all about it which was a first for me in March.

Any ideas Pigeon Watch’s best agriculturalists?

Yes it’s Miscanthus. 

For those who call it ‘Elephant grass’ I’m afraid that is a different species.

I thought elephant grass was another name for it? One of my farmers has grown for the past 20 years (as game cover) and that's what he's always called it?

I see what you have there but I've always known it as Pennisetum purpureum.

You don't half live an exciting life 😂

I note that my personal Troll is back with yet another derogatory comment.

PW members now know all about your Parrot. Perhaps instead of training it to say 'Pretty Polly' you should try a bit harder and teach it Pennisetum purpureum.

Your really not that important. 

Didn't you quit the forum once, shame you didn't do it permanently, there'd be less boring threads to read.

A bit hard me thinks, JDog and I have had the odd cross word but I would not like to see him leave the forum over it, it takes all sorts to make the world go round, it would be a dull world without them.

Saw a post on Instagram a couple of days ago of a farm bailing straw that they had  not managed last harvest due to weather, never realised that was a thing, thought it would have just been ploughed in.

You don’t have to read them.
