That area looks great. What do you plan on plating? I have only done clover/chicory but can attest that a fall planting comes in great in the spring.

You are really lucky with a 6.4 PH. Looks like a sweet setup.

Looking good!

If you are planting a turnip/rape plot, you might want to wait until about the first of August to do the planting. As usual, try to line it up with an upcoming rain event, but the small seeds will lie in your seedbed and wait for moisture as well.

I agree with OAWC. I usually try to plant during the first half of August.
