Before I catch y'all up with what's happening around here....about stuff like the corn harvest, cattle wrestling, future plans, and just my regular ramblings about extremely interesting and pertinent farm stuff, I gotta finish working on this grant we're apply for. The deadline for applications is Monday, December 1 at 4:30 p.m.
Yeah, 4:30 is relevant. We need all the time we can get.
*huff and puff*
It's a SARE farmer/rancher grant. Two other local farmers and I are applying for money to conduct research trials using a cover crop and no-till techniques to control weeds in organic systems.
I'll fill you in on the details later, but you can check out SARE at: http://www.sare.org/
And you can read about what we want to do at: www.rodaleinstitute.org/no-till_revolution
But for now, I'm off and running.....
