here is the food plot shortly after being sprayed got the feeder out there and a mineral site going with trail cams on both, and got my apple trees on the far side of the food plot, with my plum shrubs in the bottom right on the picture in the taller grass.
here is my feeder site, i left a good portion of a tree right in my plot which works perfect for holding a trail cam!
here is one of the posts of my fence protecting my 3 apple trees with a camera on it pointing at my mineral site, also in the background you can see the location on my tree stand, and it is harder to see but there is another stand in that tree to the right that is out in the food plot a little more, this set will be used strictly for filming.
soybeans are starting to poke through, with this heat, and the round up killing off the grasses competing against the beans im hoping to see some decent green by the end of next week! time will tell!
here is a picture of my apple tree starting to flower! i noticed a couple bees flying in the general area and some ants on the apple trees so they should pollinate very well, i was told to pull the fruit off the tree that starts to develope the first couple years so that growth goes toward the tree and not toward fruit? is this true what do i pull off? wait til the apples get bigger then pull them?
hope you guys arent getting sick of my updates on the food plot, this is the first one i have ever done mostly all by myself and from scratch, there is definitely a learning curve, and i have a lot more to learn but you gotta start somewhere!
