I'm putting in about 4 acres of spring dove mix. I put out a ton of fertilizer today and disced. Tomorrow I'll disk, pack, throw and pack again. My fall plots are looking great, I fertilized one today, hopefully will get some native sunflowers.

I'm also going to plant Kleingrass in about 2 acres for wildlife and cattle grazing.

Subscribed. Was contemplating PowerPlant too. Thought hogs may destroy but maybe not...

Got my spring dove mix and kleingrass in yesterday and we got 2.25" of rain this morning. It was a lot of work but super gratifying to get it in before the rain.

Will the power plant last until deer season to be able to hunt over or will you have to plant something else there for hunting season?

I planted some clover in Wisconsin last weekend. I guess you can't plant it too early. Was still pretty cool up there (27 one morning) ground broke up really easily.

Someone sent me a pic of the power plant and it was coming up good but the deer were hammering it. Don't know if it will last through summer or not, to answer a previous post. My plot are small though.
