My bride wants a sunflower field.

Gonna do sunflowers, ICP and corn mix on our powerline.

May even get some doves in!

Fall will be AWP, Coker oats, ladino clover, Duranna clover, crimson clover and medium red clover. Some reseeding and some new fields.


Lay out your 2024 plans folks!!!!


PS: Hancock seed is a great supplier.

Ha! Great question.

In theory, I think they will make it to spring.

Not sure if they cold kill in the south.

I mentioned in theory because they appear to be very appealing to deer and those jokers move in like thieves when they see them.

That is why I got 200 lbs, gonna make the blend a little richer, pea wise, this year.

BTW, these go in during the first week of October.

May even do a controlled look in one field with the blend really pea heavy but I am pretty sure I know what is gonna happen.

In general, you could throw a pork chop past a hungry wolf before you can get peas or beans past our critters.

I had a bad straight line wind blow down about 3 acres of 3 year old loblolly’s early last summer . They were all starting to curl up and I was told by Forster they were ruined so I mulched them up this past winter. They were next to my lonleaf program field and I was useing them as a screen from my deer stand. Now that they’re gone I’m going to plant sunflowers, soybeans, and corn where they were this year in addition to my regular foodplots then expand my chestnut, persimmon, and crabapple trees next winter. Maybe add some pears as well and try to establish a really large clover field this fall/winter to go with the clover I already have planted hopefully these chestnuts will be ready to transplant next winter. I grew them from nuts I collected last fall from some of my other trees.

Sorry about the pines but I love the plan.

Are you just gonna drill beans, corn and flowers all at one time?

I read briefly, looks like the peas do frost kill.

Planted first week of October for us, they will likely get us to or at least close to Christmas.

I expect them to be gone before that anyway.

Good luck if you try them!

No. Gonna do one third section of beans rr ready, one section of corn rr ready, and one section of the clear field sunflowers at different times To try to keep weeds to a minimum. First the corn here shortly, beans mid may, and sunflowers late may/early June. I’m sure their may be some collateral damage chemical wise where the rr ready corn and sunflowers meet but hopefully not too much and I’ll have a little of everything for the deer and hopefully a few dove this fall.

Not planting anything this year, just prep work for planting next year. Mulching, spraying, and getting firebreaks put in after nesting season then burning before the year is over.

Same as always for me, clover, clover and more clover. :bounce:

They say it's the lazy deer farmer's "Go To". That's true once it's established. Getting it established ain't the lazy part.

Knock it out!

It is really dry here and my clover does not look that good all of a sudden.


Have not sprayed yet but need to.
