First time putting in plots. I put in a mixture of cowpeas, buckwheat, and peredovik sunflowers. I plowed, tilled, fertilized, broadcast, and then harrowed. I was pleased with the results. The deer utilized everything and absolutely hammered the plots. Unfortunately I got started late and was unable to establish any perennials which I plan on doing in a couple weeks. Didn't realize the work that went into food plotting, but worth it! Next time ill back off on my seeding rate. I think I may have overdone it a bit. The plots grew to around 5 feet high. The storms that came thru layed them down around the middle of July but the deer still used them. Enjoy!

Looks super to me. Congratulations. Good looking dirt and no wonder the deer hammered it.
