Took a walk to see if our oats had sprouted after all the rain, and indeed they have!

Whattdya know...the seagulls like our newly planted oat field too!
Yippeee - the fields are dry enough to start working on! There's a lot of grass, dandelions, thistle, etc. etc. to contend with before we're ready to seed though...the joy and tribulation of organic farming...
