    Failed Oilseed Rape Field - Day 1...

    Whilst Cru'dad was asking permission for a small horse paddock field, the owner told him about an area where the oilseed rape had failed. As luck would have it, it was a good 2 acres worth. Although its not a field we would normally do, we would take anything at the moment.
    We did 4.5 hours today, although had to go for cover after the first 2 hours due to the heat I've said it before, I prefer rain than sun.
    Although we managed 98 buttons, we only had 1 blank halfpenny
    1 Complete Crotal Bell
    Some good buttons including some Livery types
    Bits...

    We have covered about 1/3rd of the area, but we will try a different plan tomorrow

    I have rotated some in the local museum, but most are just sorted & stored. The plain & 4 hole are not kept, just counted for fun.

    That's amazing. I would put them in a glass jar and show them off.

    Not a bad plan to occasionally try a place you would not normally do. Sometimes there will be surprises. Still great to get out and dig this time of year.
