Misc Spring Stuff
pring is slowly asserting herself. We’re still feeding and stockpiling manure and bedding while waiting for the grass to grow enough for the annual transition to grazing. I have mixed emotions about that. It’s pretty cozy to walk to the haybarn and do the bedding and feeding chores. Once I start rotational grazing, I’m back in the saddle of moving fence everyday, no matter what the weather is. So I’m trying to enjoy the respite – no milking chores, slow garden chores and easing back into full days outside.
Someone (:P) got a little over zealous broadcasting cover crop rye last fall. Which translated to “finding” the garlic instead of just weeding, rejuvenating the mulch, and side dressing the garlic row. Luckily the succulent rye pulls very easy and the garlic is just fine. Note to self: No daydreaming while overseeding cover crop!
And last but not least, the final carrot harvest of the season. Maybe just maybe, I can open up the garden a bit today on this last sunny day we have in the forecast. Off to check my soil!
