Native Prairie Grass and Plants?

7 posts in this topic

Last Spring or I think it was last spring there was a post that turned into a conversation about Native Prairie Grass and Plants. I did a search and I know there was someone that post here that has his yard in St. Cloud planted with some native plants or grass. I am intrested in planting some native plants and grass in my yard. So please help me with finding the post or if you are the one with the plants in your yard please respond.

You should be able to get some help from the local DNR office or the NRCS or farm service office. They have been very helpful to me. Also might want to check with the local Pheasants Forever chapter if you have one.

Just rememeber when you plant your native prairie grasses, they'll look like heck the first couple of years, give them time! Its also worth the extra $ to include some of the flowers, at the right time of year they're great!

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
