28 September 2009
on sunday 20 september 2009 we seeded an approximately 20'x20' test plot with the whitetail institute's imperial whitetail clover. part of the seed included an annual brassica seed blend they named 'double-cross.' roughly 4 parts imperial whitetail clover seed to about 1 part brassica seed.

on thursday afternoon from around 3pm - 5pm the eastern half of the test plot received some sunlight before it clouded up again.
during that period the plot did receive a lot of rain but it was all gentle rain. no gully-washers.
it wasnt sunny again until saturday. then yesterday was sunny and so far today too.
this morning we discovered this fawn track. we know that there is a doe with twin fawns lurking around. the fawns are about as big as a medium sized dog and as near as we can tell, were born around 01 august. they are still wearing their baby clothes.
now at least three deer know of the plot. soon others will too. so what happens if they eat it all down; before it has a chance to establish itself? time will tell.
but...we're not willing to push our luck this early on a monday morning...
