Last plot ...todays burn


Recommended Posts

So i have a half acre  i wasn't going to plant and a fellow member gave me some rye .  Sooooo . I didnt mow it ,so it was pretty tall waist high. Sprayed , let die, dry ,and today was the burn.  Exposed the soil well and removed the heavy grass thatch. Will have a couple youth hunters this weekend who  want to help since i let them hunt. They will be broadcasting this and trimming shooting lanes. Should be a nice added draw to the clover and corn in the rest of the field. 20230831_142000.thumb.jpg.4a8d8ab87babe8c99c26044df6234bc4.jpg20230831_142003.thumb.jpg.667c0f10b7e73b766accfeb3c0a00269.jpg20230831_142242.thumb.jpg.e0a9fe629b2011c9b353aea2e5496c4f.jpg20230831_145121.thumb.jpg.2f2722122981123e35da041ff2c4dd23.jpg

I would love to burn off my dead grass and weeds, but I’d be scared that it would get out of control too fast.  Plus, I’m pretty sure we can’t even burn brush or leaves in my county. 

I'm the same way.. fire scares the hell out of me. Even if it seems eazy and legit.

Good firebreak around  it and  little to no wind.  This filed was  plowed  previousl year  so not  a  lot of flamable material.   I only do  small plots  and  have to habe a water tank  nearby ( in sxs).   Most edge fire can simply be swatted  out with a soaked corn broom  . Or towel on a stick.

I've just never done it, so no experience.  If there's a lot of dead material,  I just scrape it off with the bucket of my tractor.
