Radish will have 2 lobed leaves and as it grows will look similar to ferns but all one leaf not leaflets, small clover looks like small clover pretty quick after germinating  give it 2weeks I think. You will be happy with your results

Here is a pick of the small stuff  in the plot 20200901_164557.thumb.jpg.ab39c4144183904c76b3579dfabd4b7e.jpg

I know it's getting very late to be starting new plots . But I have the equipment  on my land so we are putting it to work. 

This spot is wet most of the year and it's very thick . This is the wifes stand. She killed her deer out of this stand. We have often thought about opening this up and digging out a pond.20200912_125227.thumb.jpg.38b59c83737022e98a24623ec81f63ed.jpg20200912_125237.thumb.jpg.fae7b51e8d28f6d136ce3c82d6503ae2.jpg

The pond didn't get dug out this trip and may not get done if we get alot of rain .20200912_170937.thumb.jpg.450cb2f636d4390e3600dcb06fd9317d.jpg

going to keep picking away at it . If we don't get it done this year I will bring in a dozer next summer. Will be seeded in winter rye for this fall.

Rain heavy in southern tier now should be a good boost to the plots and what you planted.  Looks like it’s headed this way my plots need rain.  If we have luck hope killing frost holds off til November

started doing plots in 2016 always had decent results this year were the poorest by far

Haven't been to my cabin in a month but I think the same goes for me. A lack of rain and an early frost was a kick in the ass.

Got to do a soil test. Most important with weed control being next. 

Lack of rain is really hampering everything. I put in about 2 acres of brassicas on 8/1. Saw a bit of rain after planting but then nothing since Labor Day. Not a great year like other guys have said.

Yeah I eliminated all the weeds with 41% glyphosate

I’ve got thousands of them.  Sugar beets etc. starting to fill out too.  I am in lake plains region with great soil.  We have been experiencing a good drought here and the last day and a half rain we got kick started the growth.

I know the feeling @Team Hoyt  I spent planted quite a bit of soybean seed and some corn seed.  About 10 percent of corn made it and 50 percent on the beans   This hot and dry summer crushed those food sources and beans are my favorite to hunt over come later this month.  Always got 95 percent growth in previous years though they were wetter.  So put in more than normal radishes beets and brassicas and got rain when it was needed so now have an abundance of these food sources.  Hopefully after all the ag fields around me get  harvested by mid November and the cold weather sweetens them should be perfect for late bow and gun season.
