shot plot

The test plot in the back yard is now about 6-7 inches tall a blend of rye, chickory, clover. Can't wait to see the small plots the son planted in PA. If these prove to grow well then next year everything will be planted with the stuff. Wrong title on post should read Throw and Grow by Evolved Harvest.

6-7 inches is good.. Do you have any deer that come to it in your back yard?

In the winter like early February deer will roam from the state park into the neighborhood looking for landscape treats. Normally no deer will find my backyard.

Tractor supply here in Toledo has it as well as Bass Pro. I'll look in the catalog.... Evolved Harvest Throw and Grow. They also have many other seed mixtures. I thought the seed we tried was called shot plot which they make but was mistaken. If this grows in PA's poor soil I'd plant everything with it as it germinated in a couple of days and is growing fast.

I put out some throw and grow this summer and it is doing great. It's not very heat tolerant though.You do need to scratch the soil a little. Deer love it . I have some great pics , especially in the past month

shot plot

I planted Shot Plot this year on August 2nd.It's supposed to mature in 45 days.That's arround the opening of bow season here.It's about 2" high now.And they say it should grow through the season even in the colder months.A combination of rape and turnip greens.When the first frost hits is when the sugar content is supposed to rise.I hunt a farn where corn and soy beans are planted so there is plenty of food anyway,but I'll let you know if they become interseted in the plot.

The throw & grog stuff is still going well, now 8-10" high. Also got some good news from PA, seems like a fair amount of clover made it in one of the plots and the owner is seeing deer using it. The deer report is not seeing very many deer which is the trend from last year, but the bear population is high as there is at least 4-5 bear right around our camp.
