Planting Done

28 May

On Friday our neighbor Tim showed up with his new (old) grain drill and got all of our new pastures seeded.

Planting-2014

We seeded it in oats, as a cover crop, with medium red clover, alfalfa, meadow brome-grass and tall fescue underneath to make up the permanent pasture.

Nobody I’ve talked to around here has any experience with tall fescue, so we’ll see how that part goes. Knowing what I know from growing up in Missouri, it might be just the ticket to some late-fall grazing around here.

On Sunday afternoon we got the last of the soybeans planted, just in time for the rain that was forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The corn is just starting to emerge.

Now we can turn our attention to other things…
