Better late than never (woods plot 2017)

Finally got around to prepping my woods plot for the fall. Expanded it quite a bit too with a brush blade and chainsaw to areas that get more light. Also hit it with the first application of glysophate. Should've had this done about 4 weeks ago. Anyone else running behind?

Sorry, no pictures as I left my phone in the truck.

You are correct - better late than never! What are you planting?

I am running behind as well. Building a cabin in Ohio this summer has eaten up alot of my time. What are you planning on planting?

Yes, having a 3 week old baby set me back as well. I plan to throw and mow red clover and brassica/radish into last falls rye within the next 2 weeks.

I've got Duranna white clover, mixed with some winfred brassicas and appin turnips. I used the winfred brassicas last year and thought they did ok given the light conditions so they got the green light again this year. I never tried the appin turnips so we will see how they do. I'm hoping to re-spray next Sunday but definitely will not have the time to get any seed in the ground. So unless I can get out of work early the seeding won't happen til the following weekend.

Hopefully this rain keeps up! My luck is as soon as I throw seed down we will go into a 6 week drought! 8)

I got about 60% of the plot mowed and seeded yesterday just before dark. I really wanted to get the seed in the ground before this rain and with my upcoming schedule I was worried it would be getting to late in the year. The other 40% really needs sprayed again and then mowed before seeding. I'll probably throw winter rye down in a few weeks when I finally get it finished.

I'll have pictures in a few weeks when it finally looks like something.

Its starting to look like something! Pretty happy with how it looks thus far! Sorry the picture isn't the best but it was getting dark and I was in a hurry. I'll get more hopefully this weekend.
