The rolling has commenced

Not only will we be heading to the first farmers market of the season, sending off our first CSA shares, and having a bittersweet farewell with our two beautiful pygora kids, but this is also the week of planting the fields.  The rye is being rolled and the soybeans are being no till drilled in the same pass.  Not only does this cut down the compaction caused by driving over the fields multiple times each season but it also adds organic matter to the depleted soil and works as a weed barrier for the crop.  Fingers crossed we have good luck with it (last year was the first time we used this method and we faired pretty well).
