New plot
« on: April 17, 2017, 05:38:49 PM »
Decided to install a new plot this year.  I put it in a wide spot of one of my waterways.  There is a lot of bullrush as it tends to be a wetter area.  The bullrush really clumped up around the spring tooth harrow as the harrow tended to act more like a rake instead of ripping for the most part.  Oh well, we have exposed soil and I still have to lime, fertilize, till, plant and cultipack.  In one picture you can see me pushing the clumped bullrush and other matter.

Looks good Ben - some of those patches can certainly be a challenge.  I got into some stuff like that & swapped out my straight shanks on the spring harrow for some 6" wide cultivator sweeps.  Once you were able to get the tool in the ground it did a good job of cutting them off, but the long stems still balled up badly - took time & patience to get through it, but really happy with the outcome.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Please keep us all posted on the new plot!! It's fun turning a piece of ground into a plot, with all the work and satisfaction that comes with it. Install some game trail cameras around the plot....thanks for sharing....

Yeah Madgomer I know what you mean.  I traded in my moldboard plows and discs when I bought the rototiller.  I could have really used them breaking this new ground.

Yari - The soil ranges from clay to silty loam.  I am planting chicory this year as I need perennials to compliment all of the annuals in the field. (All the green you mentioned earlier is wheat).

I found that if I mow it at different heights till I get it very low, helps when I break the ground later.

Looking GOOD!   @--0--0101

Yari - Yes that is winter wheat.  Sprayed it with nitrogen about a month ago.
