Above is one of the areas that the Commander has cleared of saplings and large trees. He hasn't cut everything to the ground yet as the sheep are supposed to like nibbling on them, plus he still has several mountains of brush to chip. Back before he sprained his ankle he sprinkled this area with pasture grass seed; the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels loved it!
We found some sod on sale today so we figured it wouldn't hurt to throw some down on the bare areas in the goat pen and in a few areas of the future pasture. We raked the soil and watered the sod, hopefully it will rain tonight. Sara likes it, and so probably will the deer.
It looks really funny and we don't have much hope that it will grow, but it has a better chance than the seed that is in the birds bellies.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
