When I was a kid, we had lots of bull nettles on that sandy farm in Anderson Co. We always peed on the welts, it took the sting right out. Or, you could borrow some Copenhagen from your wife. Fresh chewed is best. That's what I use for wasp stings and such.

Lol, she only chews when she is cutting wood or welding.

If she knew I put that out there I would experience pain much worse than Bull Nettles.

Well, I checked on my peas in Trinity Co. today, and I'm a little disappointed in the growth. These peas have been planted at least three weeks and are definitely not doing as well as I think they should be. Maybe I'm expecting too much as it was pretty dry when I planted and didn't get much rain on them for several days after. They are up into the " deer can't destroy them " stage though.......I hope.

The new plot has some big patches of Pricklys in it. I got em kilt. I put the pics in order as I had first sprayed, then a pic at two weeks and now four weeks. At this stage they can be shredded or scraped as the life is gone and they wont come back. Got to git to the main root, then I will spray it and wait four weeks.

1 quart Remedy Ultra and 3 quarts diesel fuel. This mix will kill anything, be careful around trees and don't spray on windy days.

Not as much deer pressure on this plot at my house. The subflowers are actually starting to head out. You can see the ones that do get eaten get eaten all the way to the stalk. Just Milo and sunflowers over here

You killed that pear dead ! I wish I had some grapes. Seems like E Tex used to be covered in them when I was a kid, we ate them like candy, but I hardly ever see any now. I do have one mature mulberry tree on my Rusk Co. place, and it usually makes, but they're gone in a flash. Coons, squirrells, possums I suspect. What few hit the ground the deer and hogs vacuum up. I had a mix with flowers in it a couple years, but there was sorghum in it too, and the hogs wouldn't let it alone. I hate frickin hogs !

With the rain we have coming, (maybe), these should carry into at least August. This bottom is pretty wet natured and probably grows the best legumes of any plot I have.

With the extreme heat we have been getting, the sunflowers start to fade away. The partridge peas are kicking in now.

Yes, we need rain here. 4 days of over a 100 degrees out of 7. Weather liar says pop up thunderstorms for the next 4 days. The peas are doing fine, but them old big sunflowers starting to droop.

Now you know why I plant in early March.

I am sitting on tree stand now, and it's plumb miserable.

Well we got plenty of rain and with the soil all loose brings in the hogs. I lost about two acres of plot to the hogs and will probably lose it all by the end July. Once the peas start getting pods the hogs will hammer them and destroy the soil. I have never had a summer plot make to August. I have been hearing good things about Sunn Hemp, so that maybe my next trial.

Them old hogs are smart they will start rooting in the middle of the fields to provide their selves cover.Name:  IMG_1254.jpg

BT, those peas are really looking good ! It seems to me that iron clay peas are about the right balance for expense/use/nutrition.

I've never had much rooting in my plots, thank goodness. That would just about send me over the top. I despise hogs as it is, and if they rooted my plots up, I'd be looking for some dynamite ! I'm glad you finally got rain Radar.

I have that myself, but I don't grow anything there anymore. I have a 40'/60' perimeter cleared around my Rusk Co. property and the East line and South line are favorite rooting places in the creek bottoms. It's so bad, I have to mow it in 1st gear sometimes, then I disc it up to smooth it out. They're not very long, 150 yards or so, but it's aggravating as hell when it looks like bomb craters.

Either place would make a fine wheat plot for the fall, even though they're on my line, across the fence in both places is a jungle. Both neighbors clearcut, one about 7 years ago, the other 2 years ago. Nobody even hunts those properties now, so I wouldn't have a problem with a stand there, except I know the hogs would destroy them.
