they need a few more drinks of water.

Because of the mast failure, I planted nearly every some-what open spot I could find.

wow looks great. mine look pretty good too but im probably going to add in some wheat before the next rain as a refresher. We have alot of acorns on my mananged place so mine are getting hit a moderate amount, whereas last year they were being hit very little because we had even more acorns.

I did the same. Now without turned ground (which holds more moisture), my plots don't look as good as yours do RS, with the exception of my one bottomland (actually "valley") plot.

Luckily, the long-range weather models are looking a little better this morning. A cold front that had been forecast for early next and originally forecast as "dry" is now being forecast as a wet front. In addition, a significant rain is now forecast for the end of next week.

Now that's great news! All my annual plots I turned and then ran a disc through them but we have got no moisture for them to hold. Hopefully we will get some of that before it's too late.

They look good.

I sure hope that weather prediction is right. I've got 500 pounds of seed in the shed waiting to be spread and acres of land just dying to get wet.

The ground is too flat to be around Cookeville.

Here's my one "valley" plot that is doing fantastic. It is oriented due north-south so it only gets hot sunlight for a couple hours a day near mid-day:

BSK,

It's truly amazing how much better the valley plots produce as compared to the ridge tops. As of now, I only have one small valley plot and it has at least 4X more growth than the ridge plots (all were planted at the same time). I have only one more hollow on the farm that is wide enough to make a great linear plot. However, I first have to get the old-growth timber cut out of it.
