my daughter takes a test drive
Fortunately, Johnny found some time to start plowing, and started preparing the field as well as a few quail food plots in the past few weeks. So we’re getting closer to being able to plant. Still, time is running short and a loaded workday lies ahead of us for this weekend.
But the excitement continues and I got a boost when the soil test came back from UGA. With a pH of 7.3 no lime is needed. I thought we lucked out, but Johnny’s been dumping lime on the food plots over the past six or seven years, so his efforts have paid off.The test recommended 60 lbs. of nitrogen, 20 lbs of Phosphate, and 40 lbs. of Potash per acre. In other words, we will have ½ a ton of 12-4-8 spread on the field. I called the local supplier and they said they would sale 12-4-8 at $10 for 40 lbs or they would spread the same at $10 per 40 lbs. with a 1 ton minimum. I’m opting for the supplier to spread with enough in the 2,000 lbs. to cover the field and the quail plots. We’re looking forward to some health plots and plenty of wing shooting in the fall.
