March,13 …. Field burning…

Here in our area field burning is a late fall through spring before the grass turns to green. It has been on this farms to do list for awhile …. now it’s done! The pastures look so much better no scrubby grass ,the grass will come up nice and tender . It also shows that the fire ants are living well out there.

Hubby uses a gas can like container that has a hose like spout that one lights, then you walk along to light the dry grass.

Almost done .. it does burn rather quickly even though it was done in the evening with very little wind.

The next day…

See that ant hill.. don’t step in it!

Starting to green up again.

For all my northern friends who need a little spring in their day… keep warm!
