When is everyone planting. Looks like several chances of rain next week. Thinking about going all in and planting every thing tomorrow.

Im 80% done and have some decent looking plots, Im debating on finishing the rest...just winter wheat. I believe I may go for it Wednesday just to have it all done. Crappy Late Summer for food plots for sure. I do have one acre on my Dad's sandy soil farm that will probably need replanting as well.

This past weekend I just chose to lime and prep soil at my last spot...just too darn dry to plant where I'm at. Will have to get it in the next few weeks I guess.

Planted the remaning 11 plots on Saturday. Soil mositure was perfect, and if it had been any wetter we could not have worked ground. That makes 39 plots we've done since August 10. Now to get caught up on mowing...

Wheat I broadcast a few weeks ago (just before it turned dry) ended up feed more crows and doves than deer.

I'm going to try broadcasting a BUNCH of crimson clover late this week IF it still looks at the time like a good rain is forecast for Saturday.

Planted one plot of oats and ladino two weeks ago this Saturday is looking to be a good one to finish them all up.

We are bumped up to a 70% chance Saturday. I may overseed my clover plots with wheat and replant one plot to finish off the planting year.

Looks like I'm going to broadcast a heavy dose of crimson on Friday, but considering how dry October is looking, I think my food plots are going to be a total failure this year. I just hope the acorns are as good as expected.
