Last plot...DONE!
« on: August 28, 2016, 01:17:57 PM »
Well we finally got the last plot put in today.  They are not calling for rain until next weekend, but we are leaving for KY tomorrow so had to get it in.  I ripped it last week.  This morning we rototilled, seeded and cultipacked (using the golf cart).  I planted sugar beets and had some leftover alfalfa so I sowed it as well.  I am going to be absent for the next 7-8 days so everyone stay safe and talk to y'all soon.

Looking good, hope you get a nice stand going before the season starts.  Looks like a good workout for the golf cart!  How long of a shot is that from your stand back to the far edge of the plot behind the pickup?

It's always nice to finish planting. Hope it all comes up good for you!

Mad - Your looking at about 75 yards to the back of the plot.  I have contemplated cutting the trees down, but just couldn't do it (oaks trees).

Buckone - I have everything from clay to sand to black to red.  The red definitely looks like Alabama  --099-780

Kingben, I'd leave the trees too.  Deer like edges, and to me I think they're more comfortable coming out into a plot if there's some structure in it rather than one big open area.  I will often leave a couple clumps of tall weeds in the middle of even small half acre plots, although I roundup them before they go to seed.  Might kill a little of your view, but I think you'll find the deer come into the plot more readily.

looks great. just remember, an oak can drink over 100 gallons of water . might hurt the plot around them. I hate to cut oaks to

nice work
