Cow on Grass

We have had several (yes- several) days of rain.

Our pastures went from dry and crackly to wet and saturated.

I love saturated.  When you live in a place with porous sandy soil above a giant underground lake (call the aquifer), there is never too much rain.

True, our roads are completely washed out, I worry about the old roof on our “new” house leaking, and the wet dog looks pitiful.

But the soil is saturated- I love saturated.  Post holes will be easy to dig, the grass will take off and grow, the cows will be fat and happy.

Cow on Grass

This cow looks happy, her belly full of nearly mature cool-season grasses and nibbles of young warm season tillers.
