Moved the cows onto fresh pasture this morning. Trying out a more intensive grazing system, this means a lot of moving fence. Will be a lot of extra work but hopefully will be of benefit to both the cows and the pasture. Saturday is shaping up to be a busy and beautiful day for strawberry picking. Just took shortcake biscuits out of the oven and put bread in.
Biscuits are whole wheat from flour ground fresh from grain grown here in Gill, how cool is that? Recipe as follows:
