Cattle eating garden?

Postby AmeliaA » Sun Jul 16, 2017 8:45 pm

:???: Can I let my cattle graze in my garden once I'm all done with it for the season? Wanna make sure they won't get sick from any plants. But it would be nice for all the old plants to have a purpose. And fertilizer well they are in there! I have several things in my garden(sweet corn,feed corn,green beans,onions,broccoli,brusel sprouts,cauliflower,kale,tomatoes,potatoes,watermelon,cucumbers,zucchini,summer squash,pumpkin,musmelon and bell peppers)
Is it ok to let them graze in there?

Only thing I would be concerned about is the potato and tomato plants

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

No self respecting cow (or cowman) would touch a nasty brussel sprout.

I happen to like them. Along with broccoli and cauliflower. But celery is just nasty.

Brussels are a natural cure of heartburn. Glad to know they will be fine. Less work for me having to pull all the plants and they fertilize as they go!

There's just no accounting for taste..


(I don't get heartburn, I cause it and I try not to eat anything anyone touts as "natural")

You got that right. I've heard a rumor that some people even like sheep meat.
