Harvest 2015 begins

Harvest 2015 has been going on for a while. We have been eating greens (oakleaf lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, arugula, beet greens, kale, pea shoots), peas, new potatoes, and herbs (thyme, basil, parsley, sorrel) for some weeks. Our first big crop harvest though is the garlic harvest.

Dustin is mowing oat nurse crop and young alfalfa. We will big-bale this feed for the ewes and lambs. The oat grain heads and the young alfalfa should give us sheep feed over 10% protein.

Alfalfa usually yields well for about 4 or 5 years and then we have to seed a new field to continue producing hay.
