Prairie 2011

Home » Blog » Prairie » Prairie 2011

2011 was the first full growing season after seeding in May of 2010. Many seeds need to go through winter freeze-thaw cycles in order to germinate the following year. While there were a lot of weeds, the prairie was establishing well and looking pretty good.
