Searched the forums didn't see any threads that addressed this so I figured I'd start one

When cleaning pumpkin seeds last night it occurred to me that the material had some similarities to cocoa seeds and pulp, which got me thinking about my visit to puntespina farm in mindanao and how cocoa seeds are fermented in large bins prior to drying and sorting etc.

Has anyone here ever had any experience with fermenting pumpkin seeds in a similar fashion prior to roasting? Would this perhaps make them less prone to having splinter-y hulls when roasted due to a breakdown of the fiber? Would it improve flavor?

I've only just started with my sheep operations as well, I did 3 lambs this year, katahdin/dorper crosses, compared to the neighbors horses, they hardly ate anything, especially the first month or so of my ownership, but giving them enough space to be comfortable and moving daily, they went through probably close to 3 acres IN MY ENVIRONMENT
I think that if I do not graze horses next year I can probably manage to utilize the 10 acres I have access to without a large amount of hay feeding through the winter with 2 ewes and a ram, but of course time will tell

the sat photo makes me think that you raised pasture raised poultry just south of the house there, is that true? if so, what did you notice about the grass in that pasture? did it regrow within the same grow season? how long did that take? how tall did it get when ungrazed? how tall after the birds were on it? answering these may help you to understand whether your land can handle a second grazing or not
