The cows are in Sleepy Hollow. It has a small seasonal stream and a pond, it is in a valley so it gets fertility washed down from above and it has a history of being a pasture rather than a cereal field or a vineyard. This helps give it the most lush grass on the farm. The cows are here in the most lush part of the most lush paddock.
We’re working on getting the quality of the rest of the grass to move closer to this, and also working on improving Sleepy Hollow itself. It’ll take a while.
There’s a wild pea that grows well there. I thought it was birdsfoot trefoil (lotier) but I have a ton of that elsewhere and this one has its leaves more elongated. It will be flowering soon and maybe I can identify the exact plant once I see the flowers and seeds.
The density of grass is much higher than last year. Having some rain helps. And we even have a few poppies near the farmhouses.
