:cheers: Well its on now, i thought it is about the right timeing to frost seed my clover so i sowed about 4 1/2
acres on two different places. the place in the pic is a place I lease I planted about two acres of wheat last fall but it was late and didnt get a good stand so I sowed red,ladino, and white dutch clover in that spot the gound was dry and mellow I hope I dont get a hard rain before the seed works in a nice two inch snow would be great , or a gentle 1/2 inch rain would be the ticket. The other place was where I had the turnips I dont know how thats going to work there are
thousands of turnips still in the ground I also sowed some seed in a couple of spots that already have clover just to re-seed. I drove my four wheeler into my bean plot and the beans were poping out like pop-corn i hope the turkeys and
deer eat them before May. I probably could still harvest 15-20bushels per acre from them. The turnips are the big disappointment fro this years plot and maybe in a normal year they would have been eaten but this year sure has not been normal. My thoughts on sowing into the turnips if it doesnt work I will use that spot to plant wheat or oats in this fall, If it does work I will either leave it or disc the clover up and use that nitrogen for the wheat or oats . good luck to
everybody with this years plots.

If you get one for fertilizer, get one that mounts up high on the rack. A low mounted on like in your photo, will throw some material under the atv,,,,,,,,,,,and that plays h$ii with brake cables etc. (voice of bad experience)
