Planted this past week three plots in black oil sunflower,little sorghum and millet mixed in..three others iron and clay peas and sorghum,seeded in some millet in some extra strips.Going to put a little buckwheat along my driveway.
Sowing a chicory plot later this summer/fall....August -September. That is a big a draw like soybeans, in fact, our farmer just sowed soybeans May 14 and I am sowing the chicory right beside them. Doing a soil test now, spraying roundup to kill weeds, and will be preparing the soil little later. Saw a report few days ago that chicory is second behind soybeans as a deers favorite. Cowpeas is also good but I have found they eats them up as soon as they come out of the ground....good to bow hunt over.
I've already got 2 plots of durana clover thats doing great. One is on its 3rd year and one on its 4th. Planted a summer plot of buckwheat and clay peas couple days ago but with all this rain I probably wasted my time, we'll see.
I just sprayed all our clover fields to kill them. They are 5 years old now and starting tho die out. i will disk and kill them 2 more times and replant them in September. will be planting the Chufa and Millet the first of june.
Planted corn from one hopper of the planter, and a mix of cowpeas and sunflowers in the other hopper.
They were all up as of last weekend. I was hoping to fertilize and cultivate this weekend,but that’s not going to happen with the rain. I did leave a few strips of clover and chicory in the food plots this year instead of tilling everything under.
Going to hand plant a few sweet potatoes left over form last year to see if they wil grow in the plots.
