Hey flo, is that you driving hard to tell.

Added by Charles Young on 12 April 2009.
Well done Flora, always nice to see a lass taking on the lads! Surprised you can use a five blader up there I can just imagine great big boulders hiding a few inches down!

Not that unusual on the Black Isle, John. The soil here is very good and rich.

Added by Colin on 18 April 2009.
I have never visited that area Colin and was expecting it to be stony, Shetland is my only experience of the far north and I never saw a straight plough blade in my four years there!

Added by John Stott on 18 April 2009.
The Black Isle's unusual. Physically north of the Great Glen fault, it's soil and farming have much more in common with the fertile soils of Nairnshire and Moray - though admittedly not as flat. There are many explanations for the name Black Isle, but one of these is that it describes the darkness of the soil, which is especially noteworthy when freshly turned.

Added by Colin on 21 April 2009.
Thanks Colin, it sounds like our Fenland soil, its so rich its a sight to behold when freshly turned. Who said there's no feeling left in farming?

Only little old me. Others were too scared, I think. It’s the taking part that counts and I do enjoy it. It’s good fun.
