Lord I gave you an answer and it got lost
So lets try again..
RT is correct...So when you are there in May don't mow just spray the area with the RR...Here's the thing about planting seed. Weed seeds can remain dormant in the soil for upwards of 80yrs for some weed species...they then spring into action the moment conditions improve. Discing them to the surface and providing food sun and air does that. So I never recommend spending money on first perennial seed nor "designer"seed for the first couple of years. Because each time you disturb the soil it will bring up more seed, in fact, with the loosening of soil, the seeds will percolate to the surface naturally. That said after your first fall planting go with a spring then a fall annual plot you can actually accomplish this during the fall planting. This will give you an idea as to what the weed situation is and allow you to build the tilth of the soil and improve the bed with a gradual rock removal..for weed seeds are not the only thing that percolate to the surface. Believe me I know about rocky soils...your disc should be OK unless we are talking boulders...if you are worried than make sure you have help...go in and lightly disc the top and have ppl walking in behind you with a wheel barrel to grab the worst rocks...be it big round ones or nasty big flat shale. then gradually disc deeper. In the fall if you have a few days..day one spray..do not mow first, then if possible wait a day. Then mow, disc and drag(fence sections work) spread something for you fall kill plot.
This would be some thing that the local farmers are not planting. Deer like variety if no one around you has planted brassica than planting pure turnips or hog radish may fail you until they get use to it..then watch out...lol...I do not like rape it reseeds and can be difficult to get rid of. Google : winter cover crops that suppress weeds, then do some reading. It will give you a lot of good information and all of these seeds can be bought locally from ag dealers and broad cast seeded...just ask the farmer leasing from you. Now this sounds like a lot more work than perhaps you planned on...but believe me lay down a good foundation and the rest of your work will take less time. It is really not all that hard...I am a 56 yr old woman with two bad knees..ankles and shoulder..(Lord that sound bad out loud...lol).. Any how I have been planting plots by my self, for many years now and have 14 different ones and adding more this year..it is an addiction
If I can manage mine anyone can.
BTW I am also the cheapest person going...so I DO NOT pay the high prices for fertilizers...lime is one thing and yes some bought fertilizer...but I plant to feed the next crop...Annual clovers..Winter Wheat, Winter Rye, Hog radish, I love spring/summer buck wheat... All these plants not only feed the deer and turkey but feed the soil as well. For gosh sakes just have fun doing it and then watching the results.
