Watching the harvest - 28th August

Farmer Jake is relieved that they have finally finished the harvesting - at Grasshoppers we are relieved that we got the opportunity to see the new combine harvester in action!

 

 

 

 

When we heard a tractor from the nursery garden, we dropped everything to find out what was going. Just two fields away the barley was being harvested.

 

We watched the combine go round several times from the safety of the footpath.

 

The children thought it was smoke, but we were able to show them some of the dust thrown up by the combine so they knew to turn away just in time!!
