Day 334 – No Go Area…

Although farming in this area is mainly dairy cattle, a fair area immediately around us is given over to growing Miscanthus, or ‘Elephant’ Grass. This is harvested, dried, and used as bio-fuel, but can also be used as non-synthetic bedding for intensive chicken farming or horses. The grass grows to around 2m tall, and after harvesting, grows again the following spring. This is some of the last of this year’s crop still standing.
