Mowing the fields of SMLC – LeFurge 2022

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Field Mowing

On the southeast side of LeFurge is a smaller field. This is the fourth year of mowing it. The goal is to eliminate the teasel from the field. This is difficult since teasel has a two year cycle, and also the seeds can survive two years in a dormant state. Ugh. I don’t know if I can really tell the difference between this field and the ones to the north and west that were originally mowed the same year, and also are full of teasel.

Maybe this is the year that breaks the cycle! At lease I can hope so.
