warm weather

With the warm weather it is difficult to decide just how close we want the forage grazed.  If the ground was frozen and all the plants were dormant, we wouldn’t worry about hitting the pastures a little close, but there’s still growth going on — pastures grazed only a couple of weeks ago show little green spears — and we don’t want to scalp them now and then take a hit in the spring.  On the other hand, this is extra sunlight we weren’t budgeting for, and if the leaves are growing the roots are too, presumably.  At least one forsythia bush out there is showing bloom, obviously mistaking the extended warmth forthe beginning of spring.
