Oat visit

John Dolan has organised a community agriculture project and I bought a 1/10 acre share in an oat crop that Denis Holland is growing on his farm near Ahakista. It is a beautiful spot.

Denis hopes to cut it with a reaper and binder and thresh it in his steam threshing machine some time around the beginning of August. My share should provide a years supply of porridge for six people.
