North or South, it is nearing the time to put down soil amendments to be tilled into your garden plot. Time to feed your compost pile with used up garden plants and leaf litter.
Old mulch and leaf litter not removed or tilled into your garden soil is the perfect place for insects to hide and wait to attack your new garden seedlings and plants.
Being the frugal kind of guy that I am. I have been searching for oat seed or rye grass seed to over seed out pasture to supplement our grass pasture in feeding our tiny herd of Longhorn cows this spring and summer.
Oats labeled ‘seed'(planting oats) is selling for about $30.00 for a 50 pound bag. That’s just to expensive for grazing oats. As luck will have it I found whole oat seed labeled ‘horse supplement feed’ for $10.00 for 50 pounds. I test germinated this seed and it germinates at 80 percent. So I bet you can guess what seed I’m going to use to drill(over seed) our pastures with.
My winter project to rebuild and adapt 2 old horse drawn 1 row spring tooth harrows into a single 2 row 3 point hitch harrow to be pulled by our tiny JD tractor was tested. Works great, I only need to add a couple of 1/4 inch bolts to it’s depth adjustment linkage and it will be ready to put in the field.
