Meadows Taking Shape
The meadows appear to be doing the best they ever have. There is an excellent mix of grasses and flowers. The wild flower that does the best on our clay soil is Birds Foot Treffoil. That is the yellow tinge you can see in the picture. We experimented with an organic seaweed fertiliser and the results seem to be quite good so far. Full report when we make the hay. We will also be testing it on a paddock to see how it works out. The earthy stripe in the distance is where we have seeded the additional 18 acres we added to the holding at the begining of the year.
