    Yep, that goes without saying.

    Wild cherry is more of an issue here.

    These are our plants :rolleyes: Never thought we'd have a cow in the orchard....but they are Gran's love so I can't cut them down. But I may be able to fence around them and spare all the trees, and toxicness. I will sacrifice a plot though, but I think it'll be fine. 8 plots of thick clover/grass mix, plus hay and grain. :fl

    Could you trade labor for hay (for the winter?)

    Anyways, the cow plan sounds like you are off to a good start.

    Yes, I have connections. :D Already have most of that worked out, and hay is not that expensive up here anyway. 3$ a bale, and I'd need 75. That is 225$ for a winter's worth.

    :lol:

    May just be able to do a trade out. I am worrying over finding one, and keeping my trees healthy and my cow healthy. Now I have potatoes planted I need something else to worry about.... :p
