    I planted my small 1/4 acre plot in the woods this weekend by hand. It was a very manual process but hopefully pays off. I’m just concerned I put too much seed down. I raked as much of the dead duff off from spraying it 2 weeks ago then broadcast 40# of winter wheat and 15# of Australian winter peas. I raked it all over into the dirt then broadcasted 4 lbs of Durana clover and 2 lbs of purple top turnips and let it set on top of the soil knowing that it was going to rain heavy today and it did. I chose a variety of seed because I bowhunt all season long. Hopefully it all comes up good and strong. If it works it’ll be a dynamite little spot.

    Imo that is too much seed, hopefully I am wrong. But 61 pounds is way more than what I put down per quarter acre

    Well I knew my soil bed prep wasn’t the best since it was done manually so I compensated with excess seed. Shoot I guess any green stuff that comes up I’ll be excited for lol
