Got all 4 of my plots disced last week. Gonna hit them all one more time next Thursday and hopefully get them all in by noonish on Saturday the 19th.

Planting oats in one , then a fall mix containing wheat , radish , turnips , crimson clover in 2 , then I’m gonna give something new a try , Whitetail Institute Ambush. It has sweet lupines , and sugar beets along with some other forage.

We’ll see.

I planted yesterday. It was rough. I started discing and got about 1/4 of the way through when our light sprinkle turned into a steady rain then an outright downpour. I parked the tractor and jumped into a nearby box blind, and sat it out for over an hour while it dumped about 1" of rain. Everything was flooded, the creek rose out of it's banks behind me, and I couldn't have driven out if I wanted to. I was soaked.

Once the rain stopped, I took a walk to assess the damage, and then decided to move to some spots on higher ground. Just got started back and noticed one of the Ubolts on the disc lost it's nuts. :( Walk all the way back to the truck and drive to town to buy some nuts.

I got it all done, but it took me until dark, and some of it is a sloppy mess. The wetter spots are probably going to struggle. It went from dry to flooded in about an hour and a half.

Sounds like our planting experiences this year BUT it all seems to have done pretty well coming up so far
 
I still have a acre of clover, about two acres of oats and a smidge of alfalfa left to plant. May be a while before I get it in. It is getting too dry.

Planted this last Monday in Moore. Wheat and a bag of some type of fall mix I had on hand. Looking good for a week old plot. I didn't check the other two plots planted last week. They should be ok as the soil at them holds water better than this powerline does. The oaks along the powerline have a good amount of acorns on them and there are three well used crossings on this powerline.

Brassica and chicory plot coming in well. Lots of big turnip and radish in there. The first time I've used the no till method. Very happy with how it's coming in
Looks good.....how did you do the no till method?
I broadcasted some seed after mowing and roundup but it doesnt look to good to me after 10days, maybe it will come on in the next couple weeks.

This one I got best results in I sprayed once in June, mowed after it killed and then sprayed again in July and seeded then. This worked well bc there was excellent ground cover and it all got killed with 2 separate sprays

This is why we plant the mix we plant... will almost sprout anywhere and deer love it
