Field Notes – December 2023

Happy holidays from the Kerr Center!

As always, this year brought a mix of the good and the bad, the old and the new. After last year’s challenges with weeds in the elderberries, this year we had the ideal cover crop – but mites continued to cause damage. Out in the pasture, last year’s story was drought. This year, rain was sparse but perfectly timed – but brush is spreading in the pastures.

We’re sticking to our custom of reporting our setbacks along with our successes. The point of a demonstration farm and ranch is to share everything – what works and what doesn’t – so that others can avoid some of the same pitfalls in their own enterprises.
