    fertilizing rye and ryegrass?

    Yes, South Carolina fans can be obnoxious and they hate the ACC with a passion because of reasons dating back to when they were in the conference. They despise Tobacco Road teams worse than they do Clemson and that is a lot. I miss the old ACC myself. We sold our soul to the devil (conference...

    fertilizing rye and ryegrass?

    I am a Clemson Tiger fan, but I did not go to school there. I am going to Littlejohn saturday to watch Clemson play UNC in basketball. I hope that UNC beats Duke tomorrow night because I want the UNC/Clemson game to mean more in the scheme of things in the ACC. I wish that UNC had not removed...

    No till drills?

    I am thinking about getting a no till drill. The reason I want to get a no till drill is that I am tired of having to make 3 passes(scratching with a disc harrow,spreading with a broadcast seeder, and dragging with a drag harrow to cover) to overseed a pasture with rye or ryegrass. My tractor is...

    I always wrap my brisket in foil after it has been cooking for a while. BTW, I cut and split more than 3 pickup truck loads of hickory today(thank God for my friends wood splitter). I can't wait until I get a chance to cook with that hickory.
