Welcome Stewart. It is so lovely to have you drop by.
Early morning or the end of the day? Glorious light whichever it is.
End of the day! It is always a beautiful time of day to be out.
It looks like the golden hour! Good luck with the planting.
What a grand shot of a posh bit of machinery.
Thanks Adrian. In the right light, anything can look good!!
You took this at the perfect moment- love the sunlight.
I love the atmosphere here...beautiful time of day!
They've all said it for me! Very nice,
So you sow it each year? Here and in my home state of Wyoming, it was a perennial crop, but had to be reseeded every few years. We always seeded it with oats. Interested in knowing how it done down your way!
No we don't sow it each year. Once the alfalfa is sown it grows for 5 years, we then put in a rotational break crop for 2 years before re-sowing back to the alfalfa. We don't sow it as a pasture mix or forage mix but rather pure alfalfa to make high quality hay & silage to supply mainly into chaff mills and dairy farms.
We used to grow a lot of lucerne in the good old Rhodesian days for the horse. Lovely shot as always Diane
