Default my 2 year old plot

i went in and checked on the food plot i did a couple years ago. some of you remember. i had seen it in more than a year. anyway man its nice. the clover and rye grass are way greener than the rest of the field and its nice and thick. i guess i will have to keep an eye on it. maybe get a camera out there. i should have taken a picture maybe next time. i hope the critters have been using it. i may put out a cage to monitor the growth

hm not bad $275 into 1/4 acre between tilling, seed, lime, and fertilizer. i'm going to hang a camera or 2 and i'll take a couple pictures. oh that $275 being not bad was a joke. glad in wasn't an acre.

yea the landowner does it once a year for fun. i noticed some of the new green has been nipped off. that tan/brown in the way back of the pic is what the rest of the field looks like. its about an acre and a half and you're looking at about half of the plot. the family likes seeing the critters and figured this would help even if i did take an animal or two. maybe i'll see about making it bigger?

Cutting it will help it. As long as he doesn't cut it too low. I don't know how tall that stuff gets up there but the clover will get knee high or better here. Yea if you could, do it all. Can't hurt. Well nothing but your wallet
