The first step with all harvest is to go out and see when it time to begin. We have been watching our Crimson fields move from a vibrant sea of red blooms to a more ripe and brown colored horizon.
This photo was taken May 4th.
So yesterday even while wearing the most unpractical farming shoes we took one last walk in our clover field to make the final call…
In a week to 10 days we will be heading out with our combines to harvest this crop. In the end we will have thousands of pounds of tiny little seeds. Seeds that will move all over the U.S. to be planted for cover crop and pasture mixes.
Crop number two (peas were our first crop) is under way! Let the harvesting begin!! Happy Friday!
