Sowing Fall Fields
This weekend was spent getting winter rye grass planted for grazing through the cold months. The boys were busy disking, dragging, fertilizing and planting.
A fence line was moved down the hill a bit to make room for the bigger tractor to get across the pond dam.
Luke turned the lower garden that closely resembled a jungle.
And finally the fall garden went in. Spinach, kale, garlic, broccoli, collards,lettuce and spring onions were planted. We are late but hope the weather holds long enough for things to get established. Late has been our motto for the year. So many projects going on at once!
This coming week rye grain will be planted on the new property and come spring we hope to bale it for hay before turning it over to enrich the soil.
