    I plan to go and spray for weeds one day this week. Also have gotten some good rain to pound my seed in the ground and hopefully germinate really soon.

    Made it up to spray for broadleafs, the grasses I sprayed on the 20th almost look like I didn’t even spray them…. But the Clethodim can take forever to work. Will recheck in a week or so, it’s been 9 days since I sprayed, may have to hit it again sooner than later.

    So all the old poles are being replaced around here. So I asked the guys what they were doing with them. Cutting into shorter lengths and dumping them. Want to dump some on my place? I have to get out of the trees and hunt closer to the ground. They dropped off a trailor load of different sizes 12 to 2ft. The small ones as foot rests in ground blinds.
    I have lots of fresh eggs and many many plant starts to share so they left with eggs, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants.

    Nice surprise, clover takes way to long to grow, at least mine anyway…

    The clover trail plot under big oak. I have weeds to mow but waiting for clover to get a tad stronger. I also want wood sorrel tall enough to eliminate

    Went and checked on things, finally the grass in my new plot is all gone, and it’s starting to grow good but still slowwww. IMG_2746.jpeg IMG_2743.jpeg IMG_2749.jpeg Also the broadleaf weed spray is working good, spot sprayed a bunch of thistles today too. Overall things are looking pretty good since we’ve been getting enough rain, although it is probably too much. Need to do some weed whipping next week.

    Got some areas weed whipped, one more area to do. There was a very large bed in one of the areas. I will spray again for broadleaf weeds again that are in the clover, lots of them were dead or dying but there’s more on the way… the other area I nuke for a throw and grow plot later this fall.
