Barley harvest has started

I harvested a truck load or so late last week, I checked our farm grain moisture meter against the malthouses unit, the grain moisture was 13%, should be right by tomorrow (Monday)
I will harvest the "ThomasBlues" field pea seed increase block first thing tomorrow (early morning to reduce shattering losses. Then into the Barley full on if the grain moisture is ok (it needs to be under 12.5%)
If you click on the photo you will see on the left of the photo the 180mm (9 inch) paired rows that are 750mm (30 inch) from the center of the pair to the center of the next pair.
