Moss Definitely

One of the things that makes farming tough in New England is the surface bedrock. When you can't move it, farm around it. This rock is in the center of the farm field and is quite a bit larger than the small part I show here. On it grow a variety of mosses and lichen, and some grass. I can not name them (because my moss book is at home), but they look good to a non-farmer.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
