Sand and rocks


New Member
i have an area that I am looking to plant next year. It is kind of rocky and sandy. It is also next to swamp area. Right now it is just grass. I am looking for something that will give late season forage. I’m in the central part of WI on the West boarder by Mn. Any thoughts or suggestions.
I can tell you what to plant on rocks but I don’t have sand. What I do every year is wait until the native weeds mature and use a seeder and sow wheat, rye, bob oats and Austrian winter peas then brush hog the weeds down and you wouldn’t believe the growth I get if I receive ample rain.

Dwarf Essex rape seed or winter rye. I am in Central WI Portage county. Rocks and sandy soil are prevalent here.
