I have a lease in NE Texas. My spot was near a creek bottom with a feeder. There was some bare areas around my feeder and I had heard of no till and just spreading seed. I found a source in Terrell for a fall mix. With no prep I simply scattered 50lb of seed over 25sq yards. I know pretty small. But after 2 + weeks I have clover oats, rye about 1.5-2 inches tall. With the Hoping the coming rain will yield more and that this will be a great draw as season progresses. Hoping to work with the land owner next year for a little tilling and even better results. So far I have invested less than $25 and less than an hour of sweat equity. Any suggestions I am happy to consider. Folks that sold me the seed said not to fertilize as it may burn up the seed.
This is so cool.
Life's too short... Enjoy the ride!
