March is spent preparing the vegetable plot and sowing seeds. The first dandelions are left for the bees to get their first feed. Just before they turn to seed we let the sheep make the first cut. Patch grazing at the right time saves petrol and gets rid of the weeds as well as gives the sheep a boost. They love the young leaves. We too add them to the salad bowl. They clean the blood and are very nutritious. Permaculture principles apply.
