We do this often after seeding because there is a lot of rock just below the soil surface in this area. The air seeder tynes pull these rocks up out of the ground. If we leave them there, they get hidden by the crop and invariably go through the header at harvest time. This is not good at all as it causes lots of damage to the headers.
The New Farm in particular is very rocky. Look - here are the rock rakers, raking away.

On the weekend we had our friends The Hunter Gatherers come for dinner. Mrs Hunter Gatherer gave me these roses.
Aren't they stunning? She grew them all herself. I had to snaffle them before Farmgirl got her hands on them. Farmgirl thinks all roses should go straight to her bedroom because they are "so pretty". They then invariable get loved to bits. Literally.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to live in a house with verandahs. Today I took this photo of The New House.
Look - It has verandahs. And two huge lemon scented gums.
|Country Style Verandah|
When we move in, I am going to sit on the verandah, have a cup of tea and pretend I am in Country Style magazine.
Right now though I am going to hang a load of towels on the line.
