  • Museum Musings
  • Rethinking the lawn

    I used to have a visceral response to lush spring grass; it gave me anxiety because I knew it was time to get on the Scag and start mowing (and usually the Scag would not start coming out of winter storage!)  
    This year I see the grass in a different way because it is potential pasture for our growing herd of sheep.  
    We use moveable, electrified fence and rotational grazing methods to keep the pasture and the herd healthy so the more grass I have the better. It is a liberating feeling not worrying about getting the grass mowed.
