Preparing the maincrop field

After the chicken sheds moved into the old maincrop field, we prepared the area they came out of ready for some of this year's maincrops to be sowed and planted into. First it was topped to cut the grass, then ploughed to bury the grass, then rolled to break up the lumps, then we pulled as many dock roots out by hand as we could, then it was shallow-rotovated. Some swede, beetroot, and chard have been sown in long lines, but the weather has been very dry so germination has been patchy. In the photo our potato patch can be seen at the top of the field.
