A good omen…

…as a rainbow finds daughter Carolyn inspecting one of our newly-seeded pastures.  It’s been 10 days since we seeded a cover crop of ryes, clovers, turnips, radishes and cow peas.

Cow peas

It’s the cow peas clearly winning the germination race but if you look closely you can see the ryes breaking the surface.

We let the cows graze the planned seeding areas lower than usual.  Otherwise we did no special prep work but depending on a no-till drill to set the seeds.

Our thanks to Glen Covingtin of the MarshAll Coop for consulting on our project.
