FEBRUARY ON THE FARM
We’re half way through winter and have begun to seriously think about the upcoming spring. We know that by the end of the month we will probably be past any freezing nighttime temps and will start seeing some days in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s.

Historically, our last frost isn’t until March 20th but we have seen a few in early April.
In February we hope to be able to spread lime on the remaining 3 fields. Back in October we took soil samples from all of our fields and sent them to Clemson for analysis. We spread lime on 2 of our fields in late November or early December and need to do the same on these last fields. In late March or early April, after the grass greens up, we will spread the recommended amount of fertilizer on these fields as well.Read More
