Checking on a Baby Field

10 Feb

I went out today to check on one of our most struggling baby fields.  It’s been a cold and tough winter for these young plants.  Baby fields are fields that we planted last fall and have not been harvested yet.

These little baby grass plants are slowly…painfully…growing up out of the ground.  final-48We planted right into the old stand of grass seed this fall, which is not how we commonly grow grass seed.  However as Mother Nature doesn’t always leave you options, this wet fall closed the window on conventional planting for us.  This is a risk for us, but we are hoping that once spring comes, this dead looking field behind me, look s a lot more green!final-49Come on little guys!  You can do it!final-47
