Greens for Everyone
pring tonic for all! The few beds we have planted in the greenhouse are supplying us with about two pounds of greens a day. The first spring greens are so different from robust winter greens, and definitely different from dog days greenery. When you grow your own, you aren’t locked into the standard grocery store fare, you can branch out with textures, colors and flavors that favor each growing season.
The cows too, are getting their spring salad bar.
These plant communities are what our pastures are like as a general rule, and is excellent forage for cows. We do have some problem areas though, which are easily identified by the plants that grow there. Next post – problem areas in the pasture.
