Last Minute, No-Till Food Plot Part 3


We clear a small space in the woods and try out Evolved Habitats No-Till Throw & Gro No-Till Forage to create a mini food plot in just two weeks!

Fern Gully is just nothing but ferns, rotten logs and rocks before I started working.

After all of those ferns got taken out with the grass whip.

Removed rotten logs, rocks added a few handfulls of basic fertilizer and hand-spread the Evolved Habitats Harvest No-Till food plot mix.

Check out these results in just 2 weeks!

Last Minute, No-Till Food Plot – Part 2

It’s September 1st and I want to have a decent food plot growing for the start of archery season in October. Now, I know you are supposed to do a soil test to find out what your soil’s PH is, but there isn’t any time for that at the moment. It’s really late in the game, but I’m hoping I can have some good results in a few weeks. I picked up some of this Evolved Habitat’s Harvest Throw & Gro, No-till Forage with the hope that I’d be able to create a mini food plot in the heavily-wooded mountains where I hunt. The seed mix consists of clover, brassica and ryegrass.

If this truly is a no-till, throw & grow product, we will found out.

I previously cleared a section of ferns in a clearing I named “Fern Gully” (see part 1 here) and minimally prepped the ground for the seed (just raked up the vegetation and removed debris). If this truly is a no-till, throw & grow product, we will found out.

I seeded the area and added a small amount of basic fertilizer for good measure. Below are photos of what the ground looked like after seeding and fertilizing. You can see that there are still plenty of fern stems and other debris on the ground. I am hoping this Throw & Gro food plot mix lives up to it’s name.
