Green and growing

 On the pasture front, I'm pretty happy with the growth of the various plots of grass and alfalfa.  In the picture above I've got some clover that I'm holding to compare to the alfalfa, and you can see the grass nurse crop.  It's greening up well.  The grass/alfalfa mix is much greener than the 100% alfalfa, but I'm sure that it'll fill in over time.

 The forage is about 3" tall at this point; it'll grow quickly from here.
And the dogs love running in it and rolling in it.

Looks good. And the difference between our climates is fun to see - I'm watching the weather thinking of cutting a second crop of alfalfa/orchard grass.
