Nancy Drew would have been proud of me last week. And to be honest, I now have a lot more respect for the fictitious teenage detective. The week began with an extensive walk through all of the forage fields at the farm. Different fields are checked each day. It’s important to observe the progress of planting, weeding and harvesting of the fields. It’s also imperative to be sure that nobody is stealing forage or using the land to graze their own animals. Patrick has had problems in the past with people illegally grazing their cows in elephant grass that’s meant for the goats. After all was deemed well and accounted for, we began our true detective work: sorting through the records.
