Wow, what a start to October!  Fantastic weather of 25 degrees!!  

At last we could get machinery on the land, and making the most of the opportunity, had our hedges and ditches cut and topped all of the paddocks on a high setting.  No more brambles Oona!

However, the ground was not as dry as we thought, and unfortunately we discovered a rather large mysterious lake appearing in the big field.  Having investigated it further it would appear that a drainage pipe had fractured and blocked, so when the digger went in, a 20ft high geezer exploded in the air as it had backed up so much!  Thankfully, it is all fixed now, and the new pipe has a torrent of water pumping out into the ditch.
