On my way down to the pastures I saw... MR Magoo the Mango Marauder!!! How exciting. I hadn't seen him in a few months so it was nice to see him still around.
I also saw some nice stuff blooming in the shade house.
Out in the (pretty much ignored) garden, I happened upon the rare feral squash. That was special.
LOOK, they're breeding!
And some neat looking caterpillars.
Here is a shot from a few months ago for comparison.
See how sneaky I am? I managed to get Mico in here. :D
It was very VERY wet from the recent rains with water runnng over the ground in quite a few areas.
The Tanzania and Star grass seem to be growing well. Para Grass also grows well here, but I've been studying the nutritional components of the different tropical grasses and Para grass is high in Oxalates which block the absorption of calcium during the digestive process. Not really what you want when you're trying to build strong healthy bones in your horses.*sigh*
Making pastures from scratch is a long, drawn out incremental process. *double sigh*
We will get there...I just don't know when.
