    :)Every year about this time I get the itch to plant something
    I have been wanting to frost seed clover seed for awhile but as wierd as this weather has been I probably will wait a
    couple of weeks. here are some pics of last years plots
    then and now. this first pic the clover was frost seeded in
    bob oats the end of Feb of 2005 this pic is the end of August
    after we got the rains in August.

    Looks like next weekend will be the weekend for discing the food plot on the property....

    Looks like clover will be put in for now, and then something else later in the year.

    TOBRYAN, the beans are planted with a old 4row international planter with 40 inch rows I bought it about 3yrs ago for 100.00 It has disc openers on it so it does a good job af planting I just cross out the rows to get more population. The turnips I just disc the ground and sowed with a seeder I have on my 4 wheeler then I have a old cultipaker that I roll it in with. I have a old 10 ft disc
    i use for tillage and my tractor is a 3020 JD. I do have a drill
    and have used it to plant beans but find I get a better stand
    with the planter. Most of my clover plots have been frost seeded with my 4 wheeler
