    Haha, I have ONE super fertile pasture, it's where I kept pigs. The horse pasture is mainly woods, the pipeline is beach sand, the sheep pasture is sand, but thanks for the compliment! I know what you are talking about, that deep lush clover from last spring!

    Want a super lush pasture? Put pigs in it!

    This guy likes pigs and cover crops. He said rye and pigs turned his pasture around

    I was planning on waiting until a day when a rain was in the forecast ;)

    I don't have the option for pasturing pigs, horses or cows. We don't even have a barn right now and no adjoining farms have any of those animals.

    I didn't evwn think of the extension, which is hilarious since I'm a Master Naturalist in my area :)
