Harvest Time at The Isle
1st November 2013
All crops are safely gathered in and the sowing of the winter wheat and oil seed completed with good growing conditions.
As predicted yields of cereals were adversely affected by last year's drilling conditions and the late spring but the potatoes and carrots cropped well. Now that the weather is turning considerably more autumnal and the lovely colours of the season are upon us. Pictured is a view of the medieval carp pond and a Bog Cyprus.
