So I got this acre or so of fallow land right out my back door. Mostly very sandy loam here and since I got the the 520 with a 48 " deck I just started mowing it this year to cut down on the tumble weeds that came off it every year. Evicted alot of weed hoppers when I started mowing! Getting a nice crust of topsoil from the mowing but underneath it's well drained sand. Stayed green this year because of the nice rains we had but some yars it can get bone dry. Thinking about having a plow day with some fellow RS WH GT plowing fruitcake addicts and putting in a deer plot. Questions abound tho for all that have ever done deer food plots. What is the best type of seed for this type of soil? Some type of rye or winter wheat perhaps or some commercial deer plot seed? Ideally I would like to plow this fall then disc drag & plant for spring growth or should I just turn it over and disc, drag & plant in the spring? What I know about farming would fit right in a thimble along side my knowlege of plowing & horses. so any advice is appreciated!
