    alyce clover is not a clover like you are thinking. It will die off as soon as it gets a frost on it. I know it is strange because our food plotting is different from yours lol. we can plant a lot later than you and still be ok. For instance, last year I did the TNM the at the end of September and it did not get rained on until mid December but it came up great for me and did very well. I always want to comment more on other people threads but I realize my experiences are different than the more Northern climates and I don't have any experience with that.

    Cultipacker won't work like a roller crimper because I am not running it over tilled ground and the plants will just bend under it instead of getting crimped and killed. I just planted my 3 way mix in my alyce clover and it is supposed to rain tomorrow and Wednesday so I pray it happens and I will get a good plot on them.

    That's better than forgetting your thermocell and getting ate up by skeeterz.

    IMG_1417.JPG IMG_1418.JPG IMG_1420.JPG My clover is being kept browsed down. looks like I have been using a lawn mower. I got to put some fertilizer on it and it should explode this spring and feed the deer all year.

    Looking good. I am just now thinking about doing some frost seeding.
