Ingredient lists usually start with the most and end with the least. Ill be sure and post pics in a few weeks. Hoping to get this all out before the upcoming rain. Keeping my fingers crossed, but really what's $18 gonna buy me these days anyhow? Worst case scenario- if nothing else I will figure out what doesn't work

Very true, not a huge amount of money...but you also don't want to buy a 25lb bag of wheat or rye for $18 - that would kind of be a rip off. And, when you don't know the percentages you just don't know what you're getting. Ah well, ya know, anymore I'm convinced in our areas food plots are more valuable for keeping us guys busy and letting us have fun digging in the dirt. I put them in too, but really in SouthEast TN, where I'm at, I doubt they are needed that much from a nutrition stand point. More of an attractant I suppose. Enjoy either way!

Carlos, I wasn't knocking your mix, and I hope you didn't take it that way.

It's just a pet peeve of mine, how some seed companys label and mix there stuff.
I looked at a mix the other day from X brand big name company and the 15lb was right at 60% coating and inert material!!! Only 7 lbs of actual seed, and it was expensive at that!!

Yeah, I hope I didn't come off that way either Carlos. He's right though, the "fillers" are there too in everything - some big name grass seed companies are bad about that too.

as long as you have the extra wheat and oats you should be great....cause some of that mixture wont perform well later on. I really like wheat/oats/and white clover!

Alright, I planted all this last Monday and we've had a nice rainfall that yesterday thru this morning. How fast will things start to sprout?
