    Farming has always been a challenge, but one which you work with the weather. Theres no predictability from season to season and every job is a fight against unseasonable storms and floods. Its wearing very thin with me.
    Me as well, we seriously need some proper seasonal weather feels like its been 18 months of winter.

    The weather here has steadily gotten worse each year for the last 6 or 7, with the last 3 being beyond belief.

    Is this the worst period of weather ever known/recorded?
    If in doubt, yank it out!

    I know it is our job to work with the weather but well into the second year of very difficult conditions is taking any pleasure from the job

    Useful 9mm or so this morning - mostly from sleet and hail.

    Things aren't looking to great here in Derbyshire, had about half a mm over these past few weeks. I've never seen ground looking so bare at this time of year. The forecast is pretty bleak too.

    When will it make up its mind? Friday- sunshine, sleet, hailstones, thunder and lightning (all within an hour). Yesterday a beautiful spring day today, blowing a gale and icy cold.
