grass burning and clover seeding

This weekend was rainy and cool, but I got some work done in the fields. After having cut down the weeds in the fields, all except that in close proximity to hornet nests, I burned off the worst of the dried grass. It was so thick in places that clover seeds would never get to the ground to germinate. Then I planted clover seeds. I had 5 liters of seed and I planted about one liter per half tan.

I may go back and cut the space between the paddies. It has started to grow back, and the kudzu is in need of being knocked back again.
