Seeding Summer Pasture

With the rainy season ahead, we're getting ready to seed our summer pastures. The moisture in the soil from the heavy rain earlier this month made for ideal tilling conditions. In a few days, we'll seed a mixture of alfalfa, vetch, and grasses. Hopefully, the pasture mix will establish over winter and be ready for the pigs come May.

Below are photos of seeded winter pastures which will be ready in November. We added the ground to existing corrals, which are in the adjacent ground with the walnut trees, to provide more open space for the pigs.
