    I have snady soil. I am thinking about planting Australian winter peas, turnips, and triticale. Any suggestions?

    Yes you do. I was hoping the Gracemont area would get some rain. Please let me know if you do as I am about 45 miles away.

    Garvin9 - Your mix may work. What is your soil pH???? Without knowing the soil pH and data from a soil sample analysis then you are rolling a set of dice.

    Turnips will grow in various pH soils. Triticale has some restrictions as does austrian winter peas.

    One thing about Austrian peas.... Great deer food, but if one lets them go to vine in the spring/summer they go to vine, and if you try to brush hog them, it turns into a total mess.
    Use the disk first to chop them up. Been there done that.:D

    Dennis - Good point about discing the peas first. Otherwise you have a "peas off" mess. I could not resist:lmfao:

    Thank you for your guess.

    Along these lines should I also clear an area around my feeder/feed plot to get a better view of any deer or do I leave it more natural.
