poor man's plots
« on: August 23, 2017, 07:07:14 PM »
i did 2 poor man plots this year. one is a pseudo poor man plot at the cabin. i just cut the wheat field, fertilized and disced. the wheat was dry, so i figure it will reseed. kind of a poor mans plot

the other i finished today. my dad doesn't want me to put in a plot at his place. i figured what he doesn't know won't hurt him. he has 10-15 acres of 'bird sanctuary' to get a tax break. i cut trails through it to funnel deer my way. this is 6' tall and too thick to walk through. so i spread rye, fertilized it and cut the field in hopes the matt will act as seed cover. i only did 1/2 acre. you can't see it unless you actually walk to it. i doubt he will walk out the. if he does, you will hear down in TX.

IT'S EASIER TO ASK FORGIVENESS  THEN PERMISSION sometimes.   @--0--0117

i'll let you know how they turn out

Good luck with both Yari.  I've had good results before by mowing & discing down standing (dry) wheat and having it come back pretty thick.  Wasn't doing it for a food plot at the time, just trying to maintain some erosion control on an area before we got the house started.

the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Both plots should work great as long as the weather helps you out with some timely rains.

my winter wheat plot at the cabin looks great. it couldn't be better. i had 2 1/2" of rain in the last 2 weeks, so that helped. i got another 1 1/4" saturday

my brassica plot is terrible and that is my most fertile field. it didn't germinate at all. less than 10% for sure. i'm guessing it was bad seed. i've never had any issues w/ brassicas. i planted radishes the same day and they are 12". something went bad
