Scottish Highlands. We have 12 1/2 acres, mostly grass. The grass mostly grows very well. Somehow or other, The thread got turned to spreading lime. The people think that I probably have acidic soil because I mentioned Pineneedles, and because they talked about spreading manure. They say I need to have my soil tested and it will probably need Lyme. I’m not sure this is the best way to go about things. We do live in the middle of a vast Pine Forest, so I’m sure the soil is likely to be acid. Nevertheless, the grass grows very well as long as there is rain. I should know. I’ve been mowing it for many years. We just got the cows, about a month and a half ago. So I was wondering what to do about all the little cow patties laying around in the grass. They’re frozen now. So I guess I won’t do anything at all at least until spring. Still, I’m wondering whether spreading lime is anything I need to be concerned about. What do you all think?
Sorry for any weird spellings, punctuation, capitalizations. The iPad did that, not me. I’m sure I probably missed some.
