Default Spring has sprung !

I'm getting started on my spring/summer plots during this good weather. Tuesday I mowed my wheat since the deer have stopped using it and some of it was heading out. I try to turn it under each spring to benefit the soil and **** the hogs off. Wednesday I started discing it under, and as some of you know, this can be a process. Wheat has a pretty good root system and can be hard to disc up if the soil is too wet or too dry. Fortunately for me, mine was about right. Thursday, I disced and dragged my acre and a half plot in the creek bottom which was borderline on being too wet, but I made it. In my spare time,, I sprayed my clover plots with Butyrac 200 for weeds, and Clethodim for grasses. The next few days should be warm enough to encourage growth, and the plants will suck up the herbicide....I hope ! I've never sprayed this early before, so it's gonna be educational.

Iron clay peas is my go-to spring crop. Easy to grow, cheaper than soybeans, and high in protein. IMO, the only advantage beans have is the actual bean pods, but I always plant wheat in the fall.

Double disced twice, the last plot three times as it's creek bottom and heavy, damp soil. Made one double pass with the drag. Just a tire drag, but it does a good job.
