Well after 17 days since planting Tyrone Forage Soybeans, Crimson Spineless Okra, Grain Sorghum are coming up nicely, not sure if I seen any sunflowers yet. But I am sure they are up. Kept the one small plots of clover and my native vegetation is at it's peak hopefully that will keep the pressure off new growth food plots.
Looks like my Arkansas Black Apple Trees, Virginia Beauty Apple Trees and Virginia Crabapple Trees are producing nicely this year.
Filling Fish Feeder 75lbs of food.
