Native Prairie needs to be burnt every few years otherwise it gets more & more overgrown with invasive grasses that eventually choke out the native grasses & flowers.
Our problem is that we live on the edge of town so our window for burning our 6 acres of Prairie is very narrow - conditions have to very specific before we can burn. It’s been 11 years since our last burn & this year we got lucky and got it done on the perfect day, in perfect conditions.
And …. I took 395 photos … so there’s quite likely to be a few fire photos coming up … :-)
