Soil management and improvement – step 2

Good job we moved the chickens yesterday (Miss Lynne will say more). First thing this morning we had a call from the fertilizer company who wanted to deliver and spread today. Now that’s service. I only put in my order yesterday and they explained that deliveries are very weather and location dependent and that we were looking at a three week window. Anyhow, our luck was in and they wanted to deliver and spread before the rain comes in tonight. …….. and the truck was just leaving the depot.

The soil analysis recommended lime at a rate of 2.5 tons per acre so I was very relieved to find a company that would deliver and spread. The other fertilizer needs a more delicate application though and I’ll have to spread that myself. The driver did a masterful job getting his truck around our relatively small paddocks.

That's the way to do it.

That’s the way to do it.
