jlh, do you not know my master plan? Gonna let them tear this power plant up. Then in late august, the brassica mix is going back in. I planted it last fall and it was great. This is just a fun project for the summer.
I have no idea. I dont think these deer know what to think of it. I watched them walk right through it and head to the clover with barely a sniff. I think they will figure it out and it will be gone in a matter of days.
I’m seeing the same thing; I have an acre of beans planted and an acre of clover.
The deer spend about a minute walking through the beans nibbling as they go to the clover where they then spend the next two hours eating the clover.
The groundhogs are a different story we have taken 6 out of the beans so far, there are still more but the bean is so high now we cant ever get a clean look or shot.
its the Powerplant mix so its mostly soybeans lablab, and cowpeas with about 10% sunflowers 10%sorghum. The beans are there trust me. And yes there are sunflowers here and there. The beans slowed down as the sunflowers and sorghum really lifted off in the past week.
