Headed to the feed store to pick up some of the 1000 pounds of millet I have bought!

Getting the Buffet ready for the Greenheads!

Here is the process:

Working the dirt:


Slinging the seed:

Finished putting up the irrigation...

Sure is nice not having to rely on rainfall to water the millet! smile

I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow.

That is pretty cool to see happen like that... was that just right conditions or do you have a control system to raise and lower?

Those photos are from several years ago. Last season and this season God did the Planting. It is up to Him if we get water or not.

Same area last year.







Same Results. Less Cost.

Great pics guys! It makes it that much more worth it when you kill that first limit of green over a spot that you put a lot of work into.
