Still Watering and Planting

Still no rain here on the homestead. The fields are dried to a crisp. Trees are dying. We are feeding copious amounts of hay. It has definitely been decided that all the pastures will be planted in fall forage for the animals. Most likely winter rye and clover.
Today we planted 3 more flats of greens, mostly collards. And moved the hoses every hour or so.

The plants that went in the ground a few weeks ago are settling in nicely.
 Our biggest battle now is pests eating the leaves. I will have to spray something soon or there will be no plants! And of course where there is water there are weeds. A small price to pay if we can get a fall garden going.
