The Rusby Wrapper

Rusby Wrapping Machine M2Do you remember the Rusby wrapper from previous years? This excellent machine designed by one of our members (called Mr Rusby of course) is out in action again behind the tractor. At least a couple of rows of membrane are needed in the road field and about a third of our other field needs covering. Plans are to get the leeks planted out through said membrane soon you see.

Sadly some membrane will still have to be laid by hand in the difficult spaces where tractor and wrapper will not go. The Rusby wrapper certainly makes life easier than in times gone by when all membrane had to be laid by hand before planting.
