    I was out at the land and took some pictures of the plots the other day. Things are looking pretty good, need to spot spray one of the perennial plots which will happen this week.

    This is one of the annual plots, hard make it out but you can. The wheat is coming on strong. These annual plots will be left until summer then replanted.

    northwest

    This is annual on the left, just wheat now, and biologic clover plus on the right. I also added chicory to it at the planting and just overseeded all the perennials with synergy ladino.

    This one is premium perennial...all of these perennials were originally planted last spring, so this will be the first good year I hope. I took all three of these first pictures standing where one of the blinds sits during rifle season. It looks over all three of those plots with the same views that are in the pictures. Lots of deer taken out of that blind!

    This one is one the west side. The half nearest the camera was annual, now wheat. This is looking south, and is a similar view that you have from one of the blinds during rifle season, except you're a little higher then.

    This is the south end of the same plot that is in the previous picture. The south half is perennial, my own mix of ladino and chicory. Original planting didn't take and I had to redo it. As a result it is weedier than other plots. This is the one I'm going to spot spray.

    This plot is on the east side. This is looking south from the north end. The north half was annual, wheat now.

    This is the south end of the same plot as in the previous picture. The south half is biologic premium perennial. You can see all the stalks from the brassicas that is in the mix. This looks north, and is the view from another blind during rifle season. There is a logging road that opens into this field right behind me.

    Last one

    This is a closeup picture from one of the perennial plots, but it representative of all of them. I put my hat down for some perspective. I'm pleased with how it looks already. You can see some chicory peaking through there to.
