This farm can grow grass. It is quite unreal. We have hayed the big field and it is coming back like crazy and is more than 20 inches tall. Well if the chickens are out there you can only see the tips of their tails in the low spots or you can hear them clucking. Lots of cover and lots of bugs and tender new clover.
Chicken heaven I would say.
The hens are teaching their chicks about grass and the older chicks are adventuring out further and further from their Mom's.
We leave shelter belts of grass for cover so they can be safe from over head threats.
We have been enjoying new potatoes and our first Broad Windsor Fava beans. Beets and beet greens are daily events and so sweet and tasty. And we spend time wondering how we can keep ahead of the grass.
We are really blessed with bounty and even though the heat is horrible and we go to bed tired and with our old bones aching..... we are as happy as we have ever been.
God Bless you all and grow something to eat...try it, the benefits are beyond belief!
