Annual Ryegrass, perhaps. Time will tell

A close look reveals tiny Birdsfoot Trefoil and Annual Ryegrass. In time the Trefoil will establish and remain while over the years the Ryegrass will fade away. This summer we will look for evidence of planted Meadow Barley, Great Basin Wildrye, Bluebunch Wheatgrass and Idaho Fescue.

Four Year Anniversary

Filed under: Uncategorized — rnwinje @ 7:11 am

Four years ago Steve Clay announced that:
“We had a chance to sit down with Loren Ruport recently and he is interested in looking at your property.”

Now, the season after we put the native seeds in the wildlife has had the run of the fields. A well timed harvesting of the meadow left it ready for winter by the end of summer.
A combination of native plants and native weeds filled the upper field by winter and Miller creek continues to flow in the new water system, all spring, summer, fall and into winter. The deer dodge under the wildlife friendly fence, or jump without difficulty. Next we hope to get started on the proposed public access project as volunteers step forward to get the area cleaned of limbs to make way for the future trail.
