The grass is just beginning to think about growing - and never forget that grass is the most important thing of all in our Dales farms, where almost every field is grass for cows and/or sheep. The few that are not are growing food for cattle in Winter.
We have recently had our grass fields tested and we find that they are in need of lime. So tomorrow morning the farmer will be ordering lime to be spread before the grass really gets going. Hopefully I can get a photograph when the lime comes.
