We planted 3 small plots Tuesday with “Spring Quail & Turkey Mix” from Turner Seed in Breckinridge. 3.5” of rain last week so it was plenty moist. It should germinate and then we’ll see what happens with rain. The planting is a part of our wildlife exemption. Got to make the effort whether we are successful or not. Lol
We disked, packed, spread seed and packed again.

Good idea! I like that.

What does it cost, where do you get it and how do you spread it?

I am always looking to learn. I have VERY fertile soil and have grown whatever I want as we have a sandyish soil

I hate to jinx myself, but we’ve never really had trouble with the hogs rooting up our food plots. They’ll do it a little but not too bad. For as much as they tear up other areas on the property we feel pretty lucky.

That little tractor my uncle is on is a 25hp “sub-compact” tractor, whatever that means lol. We have to keep the disc angle pretty shallow and make multiple passes but it handles that disc a lot better than I thought it would.

Getting pretty good germination out of my buckwheat (planted the area with the least thatch and highest ground all in buckwheat) so far. Hoping the rains come through as forecast this week

Finally got a rain, out of last 10 days worth of “take shelter it’s gonna be bad... and nada”. Got 3/4”.

I had great soil moisture anyway. I’ll go check Thursday. That will be 1 week. I expect a high percentage of germination

We got .6” out at camp today. With as wet as it was when we plowed/planted we should have some seed really start to pop.

Day 6. We are up and going

Few hog tracks but no rooting. Turds the size of cord wood, so probably a worthy opponent

Mix of sunflowers, buckwheat, millets, milo, and soybeans. Something for every critter. Got 5.8” of rain on it so looking for good things.

I just got my lease plots in the ground today. No pic of them after dragging, I was too busy I guess. Iron clay peas in this plot and two others. Buckwheat in two other plots. The bottom pic is the wheat I had before mowing.
