    Default My hayfield becomes a food plot

    Planted ground cover (Austrian winter peas) on two acres of my 6-acre hayfield last week. Broadcasted the seed and then made a pass with the cultipacker.

    Yesterday morning these guys showed up for breakfast. They scooted into my neighbors horse pasture when I approached without getting zapped by the electric fence wire

    Been here 6 years and this is the first visit from these birds.

    I'll mow and disc the ground cover into the hayfield in April or May and plant oats for hay in October (the growing season here in the North Sacramento Valley is October-May for non-irrigated hay crops). June thru Sept are dry and extremely hot (triple digit temps) up here.
