Watching Grass Grow

A week of sunshine has made a big difference in our spring/summer pastures. In the north block of summer grasses, mustards, and amaranth (which we did not seed and is also known as pigweed) have almost completely covered any exposed earth. Photos below are from this drizzly Wednesday.

The mostly mustard seeded south block showed more dramatic growth. We think the ground might be ready for hogs as early as mid-March. I can't wait!
