    Time to terminate the chicory, wheat and crimson clover to make way for beans.
    Also decided to use the disc to barely touch the ground to crimp/roll thatch that I'm going to plant corn in.
    Seeing the utilization of crimson clover all fall, winter and spring has made me a big fan. There are 1000s of bees in it, turks love it and deer are still browsing it.
    Time to spray and planting tomorrow. E-fence will go up this week too. Last year I didn't fence for a month after planting I still had a great stand of beans but if I can reduce that early browse pressure, it's only gonna be that much better.
    Seems a shame to terminate the buffet plot of wheat, chicory and CC... But beans are worth it and the CC will die off soon anyway.

    Rotation is good for soil health and helps keep fertilizer cost down. You are working a good plan .
