Re: Testing Some Pic\'s from the ranch
"Looks like very fertil country. Do you plant food plots?"
Well we try. Most of it is topped with the typical sugar sand and grows the coastal great, the rest is red clay. We have the place leased to our neighbor for hay, so we don't really get too carried away. Mostly when we do plant it is either Iron and Clay peas or simply rye and oats. It depends on the rain. This year it was dry up till about three weeks ago so we simply put out some rye. For a good plot it takes about 2 tons of lime per acre, plus a copious amount of fertilizer. When all ya got to farm with is a 4 wheeler, it makes for a LOT of work, so you want things to be right when you do it.
In fact it has been so dry that the well has just about had it. While taking a shower Sunday, the pump sucked air, and I spent half the day pulling the suction hoses and adding to them. My mom lives there and we couldn't leave her with no water. We're hoping that with the 8" she has had over the past two weeks the water table will come back up some, and we won't have to drill a new one.
