Spring comes to the Field

The month of March in Pembrokeshire, as in many places, can be a contrast  – definite signs of Spring, but still some grey days and early frosts. Here in North Pembrokeshire in 2017 there is a wonderful warm spell at the end of the month, but also several unusually crisp starts. Averaging about 9-11 C the rise in temperatures overall allowing the plants and fields to flourish.

For farmers, the longer days are very welcome as there is much to do at this time of year – lambing and calving is well under way, along with top-dressing and fertilising the fields. There is still plenty of slurry spreading, too.

A Field Year – February

As winter draws to a close, Pembrokeshire is fortunate to enjoy a milder climate than much of the rest of the UK, averaging about 8-10 C. This year we had some hard frost, foggy starts and rain, but mostly this month was dull and grey. Being up in the field at dawn can still be uplifting and February dawns here are often blessed with “dragon’s breath” mist rising over the fields and valleys.
