Well guys and gals, Spring is right around the corner. The wild onions and and the buttercups are in full bloom around Rutherford county.
Now that winter and deer season is behind us, NOW is the time to start planning for those summer annual crops, and even those fall attractions plots. Get out and get your soil samples and get those sent in. There is no need in throwing your hard earned money away, on high dollar seed and wasted fertilizer because you didn't know what to use. I turned in some soil samples on my plots this week, and they were $8.75 a piece. That is about as cheap as it gets folks!!
I have several projects that I'm excited about this spring. One happens to be in Chester county for one of our brave soldiers who is currently stationed in Afghanistan. We are going to be planting 4 acres of Big Fellow Round Up Ready Soybeans. These are produced by the Eagle Seed Company of Arkansas.
Check them out on the web at this link Eagle Seed. I think you will be impressed with what you see, and I'm really looking foward to trying them.
I also have a couple of farms to work in Lincoln County, where we are going to turn some new ground and sow some Buckwheat. Buckwheat is a great reseeding annual that is a soil builder that deer and turkeys love. About mid August, I will go in and disc it under and follow it with a Fall mix for a great hunting plot.
I want to thank all of you who have contacted me this spring about putting in plots, and If you have any questions or comments, feel free to let me know.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive Spring Season.
