Title: More Plot Work III
Post by: [Blocked] on April 23, 2017, 11:26:30 AM
I went 100% redneck with this one.  I used my truck to pull the cultipacker.  It simply takes too much time to drive all the way back to the house to switch implements and back to the plots to cultipack.  Quite honestly the truck worked great!  As she would finish with about half the plot, I would begin seeding and start packing.  We saved hours doing it this way. 

I just had to post the last picture for it's simple beauty.  The sun and clouds put a perfect mix on the wheat as Sonya was tilling and my house on the hill.

Getting rain today (Sunday).  Timed it perfectly!   --9-908

Yari - My largest plot is an acre and the other two are about a quarter acre each.  I used to plant about 10 acres in food plots with a couple of them being over three acres.  I own 225 acres (120 acres in row crop, 20 in grass, 85 in woods and swamp).   

Thanks Split

Ben, My plots here are similar - I have about 1.5 acres of what I consider "intentional plots" out on the back end of my property, then I have about 4 acres on the front end that are partially weeds/clover and a patch that is alfalfa/grass mix.  The deer hang out there too, but at some point I'll probably break a bunch of that up and either sow it in native prairie grass or wildflowers.  Have been trying to get some trees established on the north and west sides both as windbreaks and privacy screening, but the deer are tearing them up almost as fast as I can plant them - - probably need to just bite the bullet and have someone with a tree spade drop in some big ones for me that are "deer proof".  Haven't had time to work my plots yet this spring, still trying to get all the spoil dirt from the pond project leveled off.  Slow going with my current equipment.

Yari - I do not farm for a living yet.  I have the row crop leased to a farmer, but his lease is up in two years at which time I will take it over and begin farming it.  I do however, cut the hay and sell it.

Mad - Best of luck with those trees!
