Bought some clover seed for over-seeding two plots. Also bought 6 bags of wheat for over-seeding the plots mentioned and a couple of others. I am thinking about doing the plots late next week, weather permitting. If not then a few days later. Being retired allows me to take advantage of weather.
 
Tractor guy came yesterday, planted 15lbs of Durana, 250lbs of buck forage oats, 10lbs of chicory

Here’s to some rain!

Got a New JavaMan long bow coming today if UPS don’t let me down, I’ll be tuning it this evening.

Bought some triple 19 fertilizer. $24 a bag tax and all at Family Farm in Monroe.
I saw it at a prominent store in Oconee County yesterday for $30 a bag plus tax.

Got corn out. Just a bag on the ground and a little in the trough for now. Clover seeds are doin something for sure, this rain was great, sitting the stand behind the house this afternoon
 
Put out about 20lbs of red crimson clover with about 2 lbs of durana in one area.
Put out about a lb of durana and lb turnips and lb of rape in another area.
Seed was left over from last year and just put it out to put it out.
Put out some durana in the front yard. I like the white flowers and giving the deer something to much where I can watch.

Thinking of buying/ordering some white crimson clover and wheat to seed my other areas but need to either cut or disc either before or when I do.
 
I did my first saddle hunt yesterday afternoon. It was more of a get the bugs out run, but I went up 3 sticks high and brought the bow with me. I did have one oh poop moment when a prussik got caught in my ropeman 1, but I quickly remedied it.
There are a bunch of bugs to get out, but mostly it’s gear related.
The bare greenbrier vines at the base of my tree jacked up my paracord which then got tangled in my quiver. As I started to raise my bow it’s all tangled and 2 arrows pop out and 1 is dangling so note to self……..trim away the greenbrier vines!
i also taped up my platform which worked great after switching out a rope mod that failed……good thing I brought that back up strap! I got a bunch of camo vet tape and I like it!
