I usually plant my MS plots Labor Day week and my TN plots mid Sept, but this year I had to flip the schedule. Just got my 6 TN plots finished today and off to MS next week for hunting cabin work and plots there. All of my TN plots are woods plots, expanded with a dozer 2 years ago. Rip then up with the rippers on a box blade, then disc, then till. Sowed 650 lbs of oats, rye, wheat, winter peas, and clover. Now just praying for rain before the turkeys get busy with the buffet.

We won’t plant for another month, mid October. Here in southwest Mississippi the army worms are a major threat through September. Also my experience has been that when we plant earlier and get rain there is too much growth and the plants get tough when they get taller. I may be nuts, but the deer don’t seem to continue using the plots planted early, later in the year.
