By the time you read this, the corn harvest will have reached its climax, the combine will have
managed another year without major breakdown, the crops will be safely in the bin and you will be
celebrating the smooth execution of another
textbook harvest. Well thats the theory, anyway. In practice you will be
cultivations, lorry filling and spouse-placating, so the last thing you want is
a great long article in FW about tyres.
With that in mind we
present, slightly in the manner of The Sun
newspaper, 11 Things You Didnt Know About Tyres. All right, you may already know some of them, but others will come as something of a surprise.
Weve also been trying out a rather good £500 welder. Unlike the familiar weighs-a-tonne stick welding set, this is light enough to take for a walk and yet packs the punch of a big unit. If your existing set is on its last legs, this is one to
put on your short-list.
Finally, our 2001 farm
inventions competition starts this month. As usual, we want to hear about your useful farm invention, big or small, and big cash prizes are earmarked for the winners. Look out for the blissfully-easy-to-fill-in form.
