Cereal Rye

A mix of cereal rye and crimson clover was drilled last November after Thanksgiving day. I used a crop roller to roll down the Summer cover mix which included millet, sorghum-sudan grass, Sunn Hemp, and other seeds. Nothing sprouted until mid-February when the first seedlings appeared in lines where the grain drill down spouts had sowed the seed. Because of the late sowing and my inexperience with the grain drill as well as the relatively low seeding rate, I did not expect much. But, the following pictures show the rye in May. And, even some of the crimson clover came up.
