  • Reliving memories on Groundhog Hill

    I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses,
    And the voice I hear, Falling on my ear,
    The Son of God discloses.
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am his own;
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known.
    – In The Garden by C. Austin Miles (from The Broadman Hymnal)

    Gardening is Alone Time.

  • Pasture growth slows from June to August

     Pasture growth from mid-June to mid-August typically slows down greatly. As a result, producers should extend the length of time that pasture fields are rested between rotational grazings, and not graze as short to leave more leaf area for cool season grasses (mainly fescue and orchardgrass).
