I bush hogged my bottom area and seeded it in wheat.
I cut the other 2 areas low and seeded them in wheat, oats and crimson.
Did not till any areas but they have been in the past. We will see.
I planted 100lbs wheat, 50lbs oats, about 35lbs crimson clover and (some durana, rape and radish in one plot). Now just need the rain.
Will update pics in the coming weeks.

Pics 1 and 2 got Wheat , oats, and crimson. pic 1 got the durana, radish and rape. They are about 1/2 (Pic 1) 3/4 (pic 2) each.
Pics 3 and 4 are the bottom area I hunt. It got 80lbs wheat and 10lbs oats.

9 days. Some warm some cool. 3 inches rain on day 2 thru 4. Wheat and oats up about 4-6 inches. Going to put a cage in there to see how much they are eating.
Pics are in same order as above.
And we all know what pic 4 is.

Pics. 16 days.
I put a tomato cage out to see how much the deer are eating.
We had 1.6 inches of rain 10-24-2020 and warm temps. The old clover is growing well, as well as the oats and wheat. The rape and radish is taking its time, as well as the new clover.

Looks great. You say you did not till.....did you use a drill? If so, what kind, and did you drill them all together or separately?

I am exploring getting some new attachments for next year to shorten the disc, seed, disc, pack process, and am curious how you did it after bush hogging, especially with some seeds (oats and wheat) that need to be planted deeper and some (clover and radish) that are planted shallower.

I have disked 2 of the areas before so the soil is pretty loose. I just mixed the wheat and oats in a pull behind spreader and spread them together. The crimson I did in the spreader by itself. The small clover radish and rape I mixed together in a small handheld spreader and spread them.
I don't have the nice machinery but it seems to work OK for what I do. I have a bunch of weeds that do come up but oh well and I had limed before but its been a while.
I do the lazy food plots. But the deer use them, or at least walk through them.
The other area is hard but the wheat and oats still look good.

Thanks. That's great that you get such good germination from the wheat and oats by spreading on the surface....I will try that next time on some areas I ran out of time to disc. Nothing wrong with your plots at all!
