Latest Pics Of The Aberdeen Angus Calves On Our Smallholding In Ireland.
Went for my daily walk to see the 'big' cattle today. There seems to be a lot of Gorse ("Furze") in flower at the moment. The people long a go used to use it for stock proof fencing and grew fields of it for firewood. The Gorse flower smell reminds me of coconut or sun tan lotion. The grass also seems to have a yellow tinge from the wind burn and salt in the rain. I won't knock the rain too much though. Rainwater contains lots of nitrogen and makes the grass and flowers grow. I don't buy 'bag manure' granulated fertilizer. So I am almost organic. Anybody heard of any organic granulated fertilizer for pasture and hay? How much is it? Why is everything 'organic' that's for sale, so expensive?
