Mustard Meadow





In a number of hayfields around the area, you see a profusion of mustard flowers. My husband said the mustard came in with alfalfa seed several years ago; thus the great masses of yellow.

I think it looks quite lovely but it doesn't make for very good hay. This field needs to be reseeded.

  3. I'm seeing a lot of it growing by the roadside around here and some in pastures.

  4. We have successfully sprayed to get them out of the fields that we have cut for hay. It may be less pricey than reseeding, but I have no idea. We mostly spray because they aggravate Lee's allergies!

  5. We see similar scenes in fields around our area, more often they are covered with purple as well, henbit or dead nettle.
