No rain yet, but it is up good. peas are even starting to grow up a little. I think I planted a little too thick though...

Hopefully the deer will thin those peas a little for you. :) It looks a little rain and your in business.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

Flexj you got a good start and nice size area to plant. A little rain and they will come. I think I need more equipment like you and Delbert have! Its tough for me to get to PA and really work the soil like I want to. This year didn't allow traveling which really sucked. Weeds are my biggest culprit and I need to go in and kill everything, but certain seeds can live underground 90 years and then sprout when you disk them up. How do you guys deal with heavy weed problems?

It does need some rain. There isn't much chance this week until tuesday @ 20%. Hopefullly it can survive until we get some. I don't have much trouble with weeds in the fall/winter plots. The spring and summer plots are a lot worse to control them in. i do not spend the coin to try to keep them weed free in the summer, I just let them go. Deer will still pick the good stuff out, but some of it will get choked out. I think next year I will fight the sandburs a little more...I hate those things. I have heard that a healthy dose of MSMO will help hold them back.

Delbert, I used a John Deere standard drill with 10" spacing. I really needed to smooth it out a little better, but I just ran out of time. Some of it planted too deep, and other spots didn't get into the ground (and the turkeys cleaned that up). Overall I am happy with the way it turned out. I just wish I had started a month earlier preparing the soil.

It finally rained here over the weekend. Not much though. Maybe it will get us by for a while. I did see 7 does out in the plot the other day. i think they like it. When they saw me, they all ran to the far corner of the plot, but did not leave completely. they just went back to eating.
