My husband is about to broadcast some winter rye seed to possibly get some grass going out there for the winter but its a little difficult to start seed without rain. It's scary for us.
We are expecting rain this weekend - probably won't be much, but every little bit helps! We, too, are broadcasting winter rye in hopes of getting some sort of ground cover on our bare pasture...not to mention a little grazing.
Here's to hoping we both get rain!
