Here in the dry South East the first cut was a bit light and as the grass is already setting seed it's not going to do much more growing until the autumn flush....... and still no proper rain!

Well, With a bit of rain and some slurry, the grass grew sufficiently to get a second cut on 25/26th July that topped up the pit significantly, so much that the last few fields were baled rather than being chopped. I'll post some pictures in the week when time permits. :dizzy: :dizzy:
