Default Food plot seeds ordered...

I got an itchy trigger finger and went ahead and ordered seed for my deer plots for this spring/summer.

I ordered 5lbs each of Alyce clover and Joint vetch for a 1/2ac micro plot since @elgato swears by them.

I also went on green cover seedís smart mix calculator and built an 11 way blend for my 2ac whitetail plot.


I am pumped to start habitat work on the family farm this year. Fannin county, on Blackland prairie soil.
It has been in the family since the late 1800ís. It got my family through poverty, the Great Depression, 2 world wars, and 5 generations... it is time for the place to rest.

Iím planning on filming and editing videos of the whole progression of the property over the next 8-10 years. Iíll start a dedicated thread and post them on it at that time. Iíll definitely finish out this thread with the yearís plots, though.

Good luck, it is a shame you couldn't get a better deal with the seed company right in your own back yard.

MBS Seed is out of Denton.

Thereís no better game than Green Cover Seed if you want a custom mix. Their calculator takes your zip code, planting date, termination date, crop coming after, and top 3 goals to custom design options for you and adjust the percentages automatically.

The price is unbeatable as well.
I got 86lbs (for 2 acres) of 11 species shipped to my door for a total of 143.00

I would give them a call if you are having issues with their site, because it really is worth it.

Now, this wonít be a ďmagazine prettyĒ plot. Iíve got all kinds of heights, leaf shapes, root structures and such. I did manually put crease the peas and bean percentages in the mix so they would dominate some.
