    Ok, fellows...I planted some big bee berseem clover, fetch, crimson clover, etc in a spring plot...that I planted April/May...it never really done much.................UNTIL NOW..................

    The summer here has been really hot and dry, and the last few weeks we've been getting a few afternoon storms, and all of the sudden...this plot has exploded......I was going to till it under, but its doing so good...Im just gonna leave it...

    QUESTION>>>>> Can I just in a few ball spots here an there, throw some other seed down before a rain, and let it beat it in.....Will it come up, and have enough soil to seed contact to work....

    Thanks for your time
    Creeks

    It'll work better if you have some grass clippings or straw to throw over it before it rains on the seed, if you get any rain.

    Oh and where's the ***pics?:rant:

    Yes. But, like Covey said, grass clippings or something to hold moisture will help.

    Someone with your photo taking prowess should always come prepared. :eek2:

    Good looking food plot and super target animals.

    Overseeding is the way to go with a plot that looks that good for sure.
    Bring on the rain and follow it with a week or two of hot sunshine.

    Jipped Hell, how do you think the deer feels? If you look at the sequence of pic's you see the deer checking to see if anyone is watching in the first 2 pictures. In the third you see him bend over to eat the "toad" that is supposed to be in one of these pic's. Then in the fourth pic we see the bear cleaning up what is left of the deer that it just ate. As long as we are making up stuff like a "toad" being here we might as well really make things up. :lmao:

    I fence my plot off every labor day, let it recover and be forbidden fruit. The biggest problem I have is the fawns little troublemakers will find any weak spot and get in.
