A picture only a farmer…

Thistlehill Farm Dirt

…can love. 

A spade full of our western pasture taken at random.  The worms (I count six!) confirm a lot’s going on out there.  We’re planning on improved organic matter readings with more hooves on the ground in the coming year.

Here is what it looks like right now too…over in the eastern pasture.  Church is holding back the herd…wants six more inches of grass before he starts strip grazing.  A few more days like today and he’ll be putting in the temporary fencing.

Love the clover.  It’s the second year for this stand.  That’s nutrition for the cows…the ground…and those worms!
