Farmers muck spreading at the weekend

Why do the farmers decide to spread the crap on the fields on a Friday and Saturday just in time for my weekend? You know when you landed in Switzerland when the doors open. ahhh that sweet aroma tickelling the back of my throat.

Re: Spreading crap for the weekend

Ha ha ha - its true though, the sweet smell of Switzerland. Normally they only do it when rain is coming to wash it into the streams, erm, I mean into the ground (and this is the best weather predictor ever), but maybe just now its because the season of mists and mellow fruitfullness is turning more to dew-fulness. It might help the manure soak into the ground a bit more during a dry spell before the frosts.

Re: Farmers muck spreading at the weekend

So the post title was changed because I made a typo. I must apologise to the new owners. Is that with an s or a Z?

It was changed because it was ambiguous, as stated in the message you should have received. No apology necessary; rather an eye to the casual reader when writing titles is appreciated. Thanks.

Because they're fertilizing their fields so that the vegetables can grow, so that you can buy fresh produce at the store maybe?

Er nope. If they sprayed it over the veg we would all have some health problems. They spray the grass for the hay.
The problem is that when we all finish a hard weeks work and want to eat lunch in the great outdoors, we have to contest our food with the flies.

Re: Farmers muck spreading at the weekend

After living in India, Brazil and Paraguay, the 'fresh' manure smell of Switzerland is wonderful...
