THREE MOOSE IN A WOOD PRAIRIE RAPESEED FIELD THIS MORNING. We’ve been seeing these three Moose off and on for the last few weeks. Even when we don’t see them we know they’re around because they knock down the electric fence keeping our cattle in.
At 630am this morning, Lizzi took this shot from the kitchen window of her and Caleb’s new house up by the Big Pond. It’s looking west towards our stream which is just into the woods.
The Moose are eating a sweet plowdown crop of Biofumigant Rapeseed. Next year these same home farm fields will be growing Organic Potatoes. Brassica Rapeseed cleanses the soil and reduces the level of pathogenic fungii in the soil and makes for a higher quality Organic Certified Seed Potato crop. https://www.woodprairie.com/category/the-organic-garden/certified-organic-maine-certified-seed-potatoes/
Before this weekend’s heavy upcoming rain we’ll chop and chisel plow these fields starting tomorrow after we finish up a big potato order.
Once, about 15 years ago – at exactly this same time of year – we had a dozen Moose grazing the Rapeseed just as we moved in to plow it down. We believe our frosty night’s have sweetened up the Rape to a point where the Moose can’t resist it. Caleb Jim & Megan
