Preparing for the Arrival of the Red Buffalo

Preparing for the Arrival of the Red Buffalo

I do a controlled or prescribed burn (what Native Americans called the Red Buffalo) on sections of my native prairie gardens because there are many benefits. It warms up the soil earlier, adds organic matter, reduces some weeds, and stimulates prairie seeds to sprout. It also takes less time than cutting everything back and and reduces the size of my compost pile.
