Since this was the first year after planting, we mowed it a lot and only saw a few prairie plants.
This picture was taken after the last mowing, in September 2004. It looks nice, but not much like a prairie.
The Wild Turkeys enjoy the weed seeds – even after being mowed so short the weeds still manage to produce seeds.
And the coyotes hunt the Wild Turkeys.
