Last August the wife and I put out about a 4yd. x 13yd. plot in damp soil next to a creek. I figured the stuff would thrive in the damp soil during this drought. We cleared the ground and I broke & busted up the ground as best humanly possible with a hard rake. (this was way out in the woods) We sprayed it all down with Roundup and went over that with "Throw&Grow" as advised by the local archery shop.

We got miniscule results. Three weeks later we put the 13-13-13 as well as pelletized lime to it as advised by Lowe's. Still not much result.

Wondering about the soil, we prepared another spot nearby with some Mossy Oak no plow stuff. No round up this time, and 13-13-13 with the seeds, lime pellet too. We soaked the ground with water from our garden sprayer. This plot up the ridge a ways out of the moist creek bottom dirt did practically nothing at all!

Are either of these salvagable? What to do? Reseed? Fertilize?
Put out corn till' muzzle loader season? UGH were meat hunters, dont eat commercial meat and got it bad for steak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks!

Thats REALLY small. So small that it could be wiped out in a matter of hours by deer. PLUS,.. seed would be ate up by turkey before germination in a spot that small. You would also still require at least 4 hours of sunlight. Could it get that??

If your gonna plot ,.. you really need at least 1/4 acre spot. 100 ft x 100 ft for example. And this would just get you started!!

You wont see the lime results till next spring. If you reseed the same plots they might do better now that the lime has had time to take affect.
