Welcome to Fall in Oregon! We are in a very nice pattern at the moment – a day of sun, a day of rain, a day of sun, a day of rain, etc. This is also the perfect forecast for one of the items on our ‘to do’ list – replant our pastures!
Due to my husband being an avid hunter and gone a lot in the fall, it can be hard to get bigger projects done.
This year I was bound and determined that the seed in the barn was going to get planted even if I had to spread seed one coffee can at a time with this tiny spreader!
I spread 1/2 a bag in this pasture and
this pasture and then my husband came to the rescue 🙂 He called his uncle and borrowed a much bigger spreader.
Look at it spitting the seed out!
Instead of a coffee can, it can hold 3 bags – 150 lbs. That went so much faster!
After spreading it, he rolled it with this item and pushed the seed in.
I am so excited that we got this done and can’t wait to see the results. We will keep the sheep off the pasture until it is several inches tall and well established.
