I stopped in at Southern States today and asked about winter wheat and rye. They aren't even getting any in for at least two weeks so if you can find it locally you may want to get it.
I'm planting on Labor Day weekend in Ohio, just wheat , rye and oats. White clover pretty well burnt up so I'll just top seed the grains.

Looks good Jug.

I will probably do a small kill plot of some type again. Last year I had good success with Tractor Supply Forage Feast.

I’ve had the same issue with Southern States, they rarely have wheat, oats or cereal rye. The one in Creedmoor is more of a lawn and garden store.

That clover you have will probably perk up if you get rain. If it was established already it’s pretty drought tolerant but adding some grains will add some attracting power quicker. Clover is tough to hunt on to some extent, it’s does best in times when you can’t hunt! Helps the deer but not always the best way to kill a deer.

Tried something different this year for me. Did not work the ground at all. Just sprayed 41 percent gly heavy on an old rye plot 8-15. Planted about 1 acre of wheat ( 100 LB ) from southern states king on 8-31 with some ladino and crimson clover mixed in about half of the acre. Just put seed and fertilizer in spreader and top seeded . Went back and bush hogged the old rye straw on top of everything. Got about 1 inch of rain the next day and a couple of small showers since then. Wheat jumped right up ,maybe too good, got it a little thick in a couple spots. I figured the crows and turkeys would eat some and they did but not as much as I had figured. Have not seen any clover up yet. But like Buckshooter said a rain dance would not hurt . This was in Wilkes co.

That's the process I use to get my plots going as well, works pretty good...can't afford a tractor, so that's what I do to get by.

Threw out some seed yesterday afternoon in a little kill plot between a cutover and a swamp.
It grew well last year so hoping for the same this year.

I tried plain ol killing a section of weeds in a couple of spots, liming, fertilizer, top sowing a crazy amount of grains. It's the most dense plot I've planted, hopefully that keeps the weeds at bay.
I'll kill it late spring and repeat next fall hopefully. It's by far the easiest way to get a plot started, it should get better every year once the seed bed has been depleted.

If anyone is willing , I'll host a Caswell county , NCH&F rain dance event.




Your not lying, it’s as dry as a popcorn fart out out there. Clover even in river bottom is burnt and oats planted two weeks ago have done nothing. Think turkeys have gobbled most of that seed up.

Hopefully Wednesday! Fingers crossed

I've got a bag of pure attraction I had left over. I'm thinking really hard about throwing it out right before it's supposed to rain this week.
