really dumb food plot Qs

7 posts in this topic

Can I just toss some product down and it will grow like you do with your grass?

There is some native "Weeds" growing in this open area and I am wondering if it is too late to toss something down?

Any product suggestions?

In dealing with BLB, I think you should be able to use a late season variety.

You gotta do some kinda prep work. There are some kinds on the market that call it a "throw and grow" mix. Sure, some might grow, but I just cant see it being enough to do much good.

Get some dirt worked up, and then you can have a fighting chance at getting a plot to grow.

Absolutely there is time to plant. You can plant up to Sept 1 depending where you are thinking of doing this. A tad earlier than Labor Day would be better overall. I've still got a handful of bags of seed left if anyone is interested.

I can't really get any big plows in there -- I suppose a rake? Any other ideas?

The other spot has a lot of BIG BIG rocks -- any ideas there? We could get into that spot but it would take a lot of time to move the big rocks.

I agree with BLB, you need to do some ground workup to get the seed to grow, either with a 4 wheeler or a garden tiller or by hand raking. Consider hitting it with Round-up 7-10 days before you work it up and plant. Better yet, use round up, work up in 10 days, let it sit for about 3 weeks so that most of the weed seeds germinate, work up again and plant. Shoot for a mid Aug planting. Does this spot get any sun? Planting totally in shady spots isn't the greatest, plants need sun to grow.

Both spots get sun.

Thanks BJ!

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
