Here is a photo from a similar angle to the ones I took at harvest.

The Farmer drove his ute up and down the paddock with a fire starter on the back. The Farmer was a bit put out that his ute didn't feature in my recent ute post so I promised him I would pop in a photo.
So - here is his ute, all kitted up for burning off.

He was only burning the wind rows in our house paddock. Wind rows are the areas of the paddock where the canola was piled up in long rows to wait for harvesting. Now they look like black stripes going up and down the paddock.
Lots of little fires just slowly crept along the wind rows, like this.

When the sun went down there were lots of little fires glowing on the hill. The Farmchildren loved this bit.
So, I hope everyone has a lovely Tuesday and enjoyed the little update on our house paddock!
