I'll be planting mostly wheat and rye grass.
Maybe a little turnips and rape mixed in a couple plots also.

My plots are disced but I won't plant bow plots before the 20th and everything else 2 weeks after that. Planting this early has never worked out well for me. Either the army worms get them, or they burn up. I know people that religiously plant Labor Day weekend every year and have good results. Just not me.

The Fall Armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) is part of the order of Lepidoptera and is the caterpillar life stage of a moth. It is regarded as a pest and can wreak havoc with crops if left to multiply. Its name is derived from its feeding habits. They will eat everything in an area and once the food supply is exhausted the entire "army" will move to the next available food source.

The larvae are a dull yellow to gray with stripes running down the length of the body. The mature caterpillar is approximately 1.5 to 2 inches (51 mm) in length.

The armyworm's diet consists mainly of grasses and small grain crops. An infestation is hard to detect as the caterpillars migrate to new feeding areas in the cool of the night. When the caterpillars near maturity, they can lay waste to an entire crop in a few days.

Wow. I've never had any problems before out of them. Fingers crossed!

I'm going to my place to disc this weekend, but it's so dry I am not sure if I'm going to plant anything yet. If I plant anything at all...it will only be maybe one thats in a fertile bottom.
Just too hot and dry!

They must have some heavy equipment. My neighbor tried to disc up my gas line plot, and the disc just jumped on top of the soil.
Just to darn dry, right now.

Middle buster Terry. Only way I can put a plot in up here is to middle bust it every couple years.

Got all mine disked and planted with my lil pull-behind disc for my ranger! Someone broke the camp tractors's pto so I had to improvise. Took a good couple hours to get the ground broke good even though I broke them for summer plots. the forcast is calling for rain most of all next week so I guess my rain dance worked. planted everything really thick so hopefully it will come up good and plentiful!

My plots in the bottom have sprouted! The hilltop plot is still dry, only a few clovers have sprouted. Fingers crossed for more rain!
