but when we arrived home, we had a message on the answering machine from our neighbour saying to "call him ASAP" on the UHF.
He was ready to harvest our barley paddock!!!
The 20 acre paddock "Maloney's rest" had such poor yield that it wasn't worth attempting to harvest anything off it (this is right up on the iron bark ridge, so the soil is poorer quality & quite rocky).
But in "Harrison's Strip" we got 25 acres of beautiful barley - praise God!
(Kinda sounds like the parable of the sower doesn't it!!)
This is our neighbours "new" header - it sure is beautiful to ride in- lovely air conditioning & nice & roomy ( in fact when I went for a ride Ellie & Jud also came along & there was plenty of room & a very patient neighbour!)
