I am thinking of geting one of those push type garden planters that use different plate for each different type of seed. I'm just planting small plots and the walking behind it will do me some good!!

Planting corn can be done by hand. I don't know how much you are looking to plant.
Just make sure you prep the soil and plant to the right depth. I have brassicas planted this year and clover. Next year I will plant corn as a late winter food source. There are no acorns this year, and they have hammered the brassicas. Tough hunting this year though.

Yes I would. They are about done with the tops now, and they are eating the bulbs now.

Tape off a 100'x100' section you want planted. Dig 20 holes, 5 feet apart and did each hole atleast 1 foot deep. Then pour 5 quarts of seeds down each hole and bury them. Then dig another 20 holes in between your first twenty, again 1 foot deep and pour as much lime and fertilizer together that it takes to fill up the hole. Water each plant daily, three times a day.







I'm just kiddin- don't do a thing I said. I was just messin with ya buddy.

For Brassica In the Northeast - Spray round up in June -

Then inMid July when all the grasses are DEAD -
Disk & Prep soil with a firm seed bed -

Lime & Fertilize as required (brassicas like lots of Nitrogen and a PH above 5.5 with 6.5 being excellent)

Then Broadcast 4-8 lbs of Brassica Mix as per the bag instructions ( canola/rapseed usually - but also turnips, Kale and other similar type plants are in most mixes). ROLL the seeds in ( do not disk them in).

Synopsis - June - March:














I plant them most years - but I've never been really happy with the way the deer use them DURING deer season. They always eat the Soybeans first during hunting season - and by January/February start to key in on the brassica. I'd suspect that if all you offered was brassica - and your neighbors didn't leave a lot of other crops out - it would be a different story...................................they are easy to plant!
