More Pasture Clearing

Various ruminants were busily working away at the brush in the upper pasture for most of the summer. Last spring it looked like this:
Now it looks like this:
And over the hill looks like this:
It hard to get a photo to give a good sense of scale, but the area is about 300 feet long and about 70 feet wide. Next up is raking, then spreading seed and praying for rain. This work will nearly double my largest pasture.

I am really looking forward to seeing how the pastures perform next year. Between all the sheep manure and urine and the liming the soil fertility and environment should be improving and giving a better harvest of grasses.

  1. It's wonderful to enlist critter help! They love to eat and we love to have them eat what we don't want. :)

    Seeding and rain are always unpredictable for us too. Here's hoping for a flourishing pasture for you soon.
