The annual fall mowing has begun. Several areas of Habitat Home are mowed once a year. The savanna was mowed today. This area could be burned but there are many trees growing in the savanna and it borders a nursery. Just too much risk. We mow to control the invasive species Autumn Olive and the mowed grass is left on the ground. I have thought it would be good to rake it up but who wants to rake several acres? This is also a good time to scatter seeds of various forbs that have been collected earlier. So today, seeds of purple cone flower and blackeyed Susuans were sown in this area.
