    I’m like your way of thinking. Perennial clover plots are the ticket. Lime as needed, maybe bush hog and fertilize twice a year and enjoy the view

    A year round crop would be nice but I agree, clover is still king here in PA. Our Pennsylvania clover is deer food for about 9 1/2 months of the year if things go well. My deer were grazing my best clover fields into early January, and still digging into the snow in February for clover remnants, but from the New Year to the middle of March it's pretty slim pickings. Our northern dilemma is that while our midsummer plots do great we have few options for midwinter. Rye is a bit more persistent than clover in midwinter, but what is green is usually grazed right to soil level. So those of us who aren't in CWD areas usually resort to some supplemental feeding to keep the herd in good shape from January until mid-March. Here's some turkeys in my mid-February clover and rye this year. Screenshot_20190228-215618_Gallery.jpg

    Looks like a blank piece of paper---would make for a very difficult jigsaw puzzle.
