Worth while to get your soil tested anyway. You can send it local and have it tested or buy an inexpensive PH tester. The proper fertilizer and/or lime amounts for what you plant will make a huge difference in how effective your plot will be.

Talk to your county agent & get info from him about what will grow best in your area.  Take the advice of others on here who discussed soil samples.  Those beautiful plots you see on t.v. & in magazines don't just happen by discing, planting & watching.  They take proper soil, matched with the right seed, fertilizer, rain, lots of work, & the Blessing of the Good Lord.

Good luck on your quest!

I like mixing it up. My favorite stand is on a plot that has small amount of standing corn in the middle of the plot, with other seed around it. I plant the corn in the spring with soybeans around it, then disk the beans under about the middle of August and put clover, rye grass, chicory, and turnip mix down. Keeps the deer coming to it year round.
