Was at a friends place today helping plant rye, oats, peas, etc. Took a couple pics of the brassica we seeded about a month ago. Looking pretty nice. The critters will enjoy all this come fall.

I have one very small plot that has been wiped out already. I've planted brassicas in that spot for the last 4-5 years, and they rarely let it get much above 4 inches or so. Never understood that. Its in a clearcut with plenty of food, but they like it for some reason.

I suspect the plot above will get hammered come mid October? It had soybeans in it this summer but they got totally wiped out, not even a stem left.

The pic with the guys boot in it was a Roundup Ready soybean plot that we sprayed with Roundup the other week and just brodacast brassica in to it. The soybeans that were left have since been browsed off.

This plot was hit with serious equipment. I chisel plowed it and then we ran a 6 ft tiller over it. Cultipacked it, spread seed and then cultipacked it again.

On the flip side, this plot in the pic below was disced with a $10 old farm disc I pulled behind my atv and the seed was spread, and cultipacked in.
