2018 Fall Plot

I didn't want to hijack the other thread so I started a new one. This is the mix I planted, which others have stated is a too heavy. (Thank you! All advice welcome). Only an expert in my own mind.
Winter Rye = 50#
Spring Oats = 50#
Forage Peas = 20#
Medium Red Clover = 20#
White Clover = 20#
Forage Rape = 1#
Purple Top Turnips = 1#
Groundhog Radish = 1#

Planted the one acre plot on 8-7-18.

It will be one week tomorrow since its been planted and the plot hasn't received one drop of rain. It's in desperate need of some. Hard to tell from the pics but it's trying to break through. A little rain should set it off.

You are probably the only place in the Western part of the state that hasn't got rain in the last week. What are the trees in the middle of the field?

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Hand picked them after tilling. There's still a few smaller ones here and there. This is the 2nd time I've redone this plot so it's in pretty good shape. This is what it looked like this spring. I just let it grow up over the early summer so I could redo it. Also added #300 of fertilizer to it.

It has literally poured a couple of different days within a 1/2 mile on each side of me. We're getting a frog choker as I type, though. Doing my happy dance. Can't wait to see the plot in the morning. It's waiting to burst through.


The trees on the right are 4 apple trees (Pippin, Mac's & Cortland). You can only see 2 in the picture, though. The tree directly behind them and sticking out a bit is a chestnut tree. That's also the trunk of another chestnut tree that looks like one of the apple trees. So on the right side of the plot is 2 chestnuts, 4 apple trees and 5 pear trees. The tree on the left that's tilled around is a Spy apple tree. The tree directly above the picture is some big tree I didn't want to deal with so I just put the plot around it.

Today is day 21 since I put the plot in. Brassicas are looking pretty good.
