Here are a few of my plots that I did in the throw n mow method last fall. Some I actually mowed and some I just let the dead vegetation fall on it. We went right around 90 days with no rain right after I planted. We did not get any rain until the middle of December. I was worried the birds had ate all of it or that it would be too late to work. I was surprised how well it has done. The deer are absolutely loving the clover. I planted winter rye as the nurse crop and I have one sandy plot that I planted arrow leaf clover and chicory in because it stays so dry and I read they were good for sandy soils. They are still struggling a little bit in it because it has been dry for us. As you can see my plots are not weed free but I am fine with that. I still have the rye standing and I am just going to let it die on its own. I am leaving it for fawning cover. The seem to like it as a little cover in the plots as well. I planted a mix of Landino, Durrana, Crimson, Medium Red and Arrow leaf clovers in the plots. I even tried AWP that came up great with the throw and mow but the deer ate them up. I will do them again but I will do the whole 2 acre plot in them with clover planted around the edges. I mainly tried them just to see if I could get them to come up with that planting method. I relay like this method and for me with no tractor right now it was a no brainer for me. So if you have ever been on the fence about it, try it on a plot and see what you think. I would love to see how they would have came out if I would have got the right rain when I planted them. My deer love them I see beds in them so it is working great for me.
