East Windbreak

Planted 28 Tagasaste (Chamaecytisus palmensis) along the east fence. First slashed a wide strip along the length of the fence. We plan to plant more fodder trees here to act as a windbreak (from easterlies) and backup fodder if we ever decide to graze animals.
Notice the difference in grass growth on the neighbouring property which is running seven cows on about 6 acres and purchasing feed at $150 a round bale to feed the animals. The carrying capacity is clearly insufficient.
