What Underground organization  is at work beneath the fields? At a rough count there must be fifty molehills in this picture, and that is only part of it; there are at least five times as many overall – two hundred and fifty over the whole smallholding.

An approximate calculation suggest the molehills average 0.025 of a cubic meter, or some 6.25 cubic metres spread around the fields. 20170203_081343That is over six tonnes of good soil above ground.

What is happening down there, how many moles are busy breeding away at this time of year, will they rise up and… who knows

In many places the turf sinks down as one walks across it. We need to get a harrow out and at least spread the molehills over the turf.
