And they are loaded..
I don’t think mine have pods yet and half the field is waist tall. Not sure when they will pod
I planted mine a bit early I think.
No where near waist high , deer are keeping them at about 2'..
Any blooms or did they die when you sprayed
Mine are 12-24 depending on the spot and browse pressure. The waist high growth has me jealous of his E fence.
Mine have a bunch of small flowers and some beans. I think im 2-3 weeks behind you.
Nothing died. Lol. I didn’t mix it right. Too light.
So I have some areas that are 18-24 inches. Those areas nipped off a bit. But then there is quite a bit that is waste high, let’s say 30 inches cause that’s what size pants i wear, especially where the lay of the land is a tad higher. I think it’s higher there because when we did get flooding rains after I planted these areas didn’t hold water. Leaves are really big too. Over all I am very pleased with how my plot turned out for a first time “farmer”. Lol. The weird thing is it’s not out of the question to see 8-10 doe within couple hundred yards of my plot in the evenings when I leave but seem to only get one big girl on camera and she comes from the opposite direction of where I see the others. I have 3 others a mom and what looks like her 2 from last year which one is a spike that roam the property but have yet to get pics of them eating in it. But they eat the corn on the other side of my place. I know they know it’s there cause they came out the other evening when I was spraying plot and they saw me.
Give it time. A quart per acre takes time to work but it will (assuming you used that much). I thought the same thing because im used to a real hot mix that burns stuff fast.
It called for 2 1/2 ounces per gallon. I used 2 1/2 ounces per 2gallons. Got in a hurry because I ingot out there later than expected. Wife wanted to go out and I was not planning on it.
Wait, so you are blaming this on your wife..
Well if it keeps me from feeling as if it was my fault then yes. Lol
I actually just resprayed the plot. The grass is starting to yellow a little bit but the ragweed is not.
ragweed is tough, it will take a lil longer to show an effect.
I was out there again today as I am building my first box blind, and told the wife I don’t think ragweed can be killed. That stuff is tough.
It is getting tougher now in this hit weather. We sprayed some pasture fields earlier with 1 quart of 24-D per acre an it wiped it put.
another thing is timing of when you spray this time of year. You want to spray herbicide when the plants are in their growing stage. Once we reach @90 ish degrees in the heat of the afternoon the plant shuts down and won't uptake the herbicide as good as it does early in the morning or late evening.
