Great to see we are up and running again. It's great to read such a different approach and to now look arond the landscape with another set of eyes. Have always been frustrated methods employed by so called progressive farmers, this came to a head when our neighbour recently waited till his thistles were a metre high....then sprayed them now has ploughed around them :roll:
Remember.... no success or failure need be necessarily final!

Farming is about producing a product from the sun and air that a farmer can sell. The thistles have the capacity to double their weight every 10 days ie they can increase their weight from 1kg to 2kg to 4kg to 8kg to 16kg in 40 days. This means they are sequesting carbon and pulling up minerals from deep with in the soil profile.

If that particular farmer had let them grow to their maximum, then slashed the thistles and used them as mulch he would have found that the area where the thistles were would have come back with a fantastic crop of grass.
