Might broadcast some daikon radish seed into a field to see if they will come up, Supposed to loosen soil up

Managed to bend the heck out of my disc 3pt again. Pretty sure I am going to have to fab a replacement part as I keep straightening it out and it keeps bending


I had to order my sun hemp. The feed store had it in less than a week though. Good luck.

We got 10 acres planted at our place on Saturday. IC peas, buckwheat, Sun Hemp, 50 pounds an acre (150 lbs peas, 50 pounds SH, 50 lbs buckwheat per 5 acre plot) Picked up the seed from Turner seed. J talked me into the buckwheat, will be interested to see how it does. Got about a 1/3” of rain on it after we left and have a chance of rain every day this week!
Hopefully I’ll be able to post pics of success in a few weeks.

I have sunflowers and Sunn hemp about 12-14 inches tall now, the peas are about 10 inches tall. After the recent rains, the plots are really taking off and the deer are fat.

I finally got started on a couple plots today on my deer lease. The day didn't quite turn out as planned though. We had some bad winds with this last round of severe thunderstorms a couple weeks ago, and we had several trees across the roads. We didn't know the full extent until we traveled all the roads. I had my backhoe on the lease, and my Husky made short work of the downed trees.
I was only expecting to move this one, but there were two more big pines, plus assorted dead and green tops.

After the tree wrestling, we finally got to the plot prep. I had previously disced lime in this plot so I just ran the almost straight disc over it a couple times to loosen up what little vegetation was there. This spot is not ideal for a plot, since it was an old logging set and had most of the topsoil pushed off at some point. It's been planted in wheat once, and last fall had a bumper crop of goatweeds so at least it's had a little organic matter turned under. I decided on buckwheat this spring in order to make some more organic matter hopefully. It will be planted to wheat and/or rye this fall.

I have got a bunch of dove weed showing, and some johnson grass. I kinda hope the peas get thick and vine out and choke some of it out. We got more rain coming this week.

My hay bottoms over at camp have good stand of clover in them, so I donít think Iím going to do anything over there until fall. No sense in turning it under just to plant something else. Deer and turkeys should be fat and happy.

Planted about 5 acres yesterday with a buddy. A summer mix with a bunch of black eyed peas, okra and Sunn hemp mixed in. Should hit the rain just right.

I have a few plots around the house already you I need to get some progress pics of

Deer are really hitting plots now, you can see in the first picture how they are stripping the leaves off of the peas . I have some volunteer sorghum coming up from last year too.

The second picture shows how they are thinning it out, they stay bedded at the edge of the plots and graze like cows off and on during the day.

Looks like you got some pretty heavy rain there Logan. I can the pics better on my iPad than I could on my phone, I don't see much grass in there yet, and that's a good thing. It might take the deer a while to figure out that it's good to eat, and that's a good thing too.

Lots and lots of rain. Being it is a on a slope, Iíve got some run off, but looks like most of the seed stayed where it needed to. I think theyíve been testing the waters according to the tracks out there. I left at 5 this afternoon and had a visitor shortly after.

Got one plot planted into Eagle soybeans last week before the rain. This was a winter grain plot that I didnít get a chance to spray before planting.... hopefully I can spray it in a few weeks to take care of everything but the beans


Planted a field of Durana clover, chicory, and rye last fall that is looking pretty good:

Iron clay cowpeas and Sunn hemp. We planted 50#ís of okra in our other plots, I wish I could have got some in on this one but we planted it before the okra seed was in.

You still ain't the last ! I have buckwheat coming up in a couple plots that are my friends' plots, but I've yet to plant our peas. I poured out five inches from our rain gauge yesterday when I took this picture of the buckwheat. Maybe toward the last of next week......

Great fawn pic. Peas are coming up. Soybeans or sunflowers that were broadcast are trying to get up through the wheat stalks.

I checked my plots this evening

Got some growth but parts have water standing so I doubt anything will come up through 1-2" of water

Ground is so saturated here that even on high ground there is water just standing

This afternoon I had to go check and make sure I couldn't find a water line leak as much water was just standing and trickling through yard
