I've decided to clear a few new plots out this year. Here is one I opened up today. It is sandwiched between the tuscumbia river and mays creek. It's a small thicket with beans on 3 sides and a pine thicket across creek. Always wanted a plot here hope it turns out to be productive

I planted 4 plots today in anticipation of the storm rain! Changing my strategy up this year. I'm only planting wheat 97% and greens 3%.... Last year I spent WAY to much $$$ on plot seed last year.

GTK I figure we will atleast be in the outer bands! That storm should be so broken up and huge by the time it gets up here. I've got my fingers crossed anyways!

Good looking spot Chad, I feel you on the spending too much on plots, said I was gonna cut back this year and have went back 3 different times to get more seed that I said I wouldn't plant.
