22 April 2007 - Ginny, Helen and The Girls (the dogs) went walking in one of the back fields on this beautiful Spring day. Ah! Notice that the ground crop is growing fast! Yes, this is the same ground crop that Farmer Ben planted last Fall. It will be really tall soon -- and then he will plow it under and use it as 'green manure'. It will desinegrate in the soil and release it's nutitrients back into the soil. It held the soil in place all winter -- against the wind, rain and snow. What a hard job it has - but it did it well. Thank you ground cover!
