This is an update to last autumn’s pasture planting project. I’m proud to report that thanks to a wet summer, the black walnut saplings are doing great. The first season is traditionally a struggle as the young sprouts fight for survival among the bromegrass and multitude of weeds that are firmly established in the pasture. Once the baby hardwoods, however, reach the critical stage where they surpass the other vegetation, they should be home free. Fingers and toes crossed for a moisture-filled second half of the summer.
