When the land is first cleared,  it has always been called ‘new ground’. The project of expanding the wildlife plot has gone on part of the winter and now nears completion. 

What had been a field 30 odd years ago, has now been cleared again. The trees and brush are mostly gone…

Hubby will begin the task of disking, and seeding with clover today. The clover won’t likely go in today, there will be about 40,000 rocks, roots and other debris to pick up as the disk runs over the long fallow land.

That will be my ‘job’ I imagine…

Well, I am preparing to grab a jacket and cap and head off to help get the disk hitched up and ready to go. Hubby is already out starting the little black truck that serves as our tractor….
