I live very near a historic and well established arable farm. For most of the year this is delightful with few problems. However, there are a few things in the year that we have to put up with if we want the nice side of farming neighbours. To start with, we have the harvest to contend with. Farmer Bloggs never announces when he’s going to harvest the crops in the huge field next door. We just find out when that’s imminent because they check the crop on a daily basis and then the massive combine harvester goes chuntering around the field at night. Fortunately, always at night. We use a professional carpet and house cleaning agency to completely rid us of the irritating residue. The chaff and messy airborne waste comes down on everything – infiltrating the windows and doors. We find it gets into all the nooks and crannies, trodden into the carpets and throughout the furnishings.
