Okay... here's my next "newbie" question.
I currently have buckwheat planted in two plots that are going to have oats in one and brassicas in the other for the fall.
Question is: Can I just till the buckwheat under and plant the new stuff, or do I have to spray the buckwheat first to kill it?

Just till it under...buckwheat is not an enemy that needs a spray death sentence,and it is great for building the soil...Great first step to take, keep us posted.

You can mow it first to make it easier to till in..

Thanks RB... I'm looking forward to getting those fall plots in. I ordered my seed and fertilizer yesterday and I'm picking it up next Saturday.

I think the suggestion to mow it is a good one. Depending on how tall the BW is, it can be a problem working it into the soil.

Thanks Dutch... Will do. Here's a pic of my first ever food plot. I took it with my cell phone pretty early in the growth stage. You should see it now! Do I sound proud?

You've done well, Pilgrim..... er... CJ.

Nice plot. You seem to be the "proud Poppa", as you should be.

Very cool to see all these plots being done for the critters guys!
