    I hear ya! Lots of unknowns. Lots of choices to make. I'd be tempted to leave it alone. Options after that: clip the tops off the weeds to allow some light and water to the ground. Maybe? If...

    I don't think the OM is going to limit your selection of forages....too much. It's a food plot, not an occupation! Rye (the small grain and not ryegrass) is the first forage that comes to mind. ...

    I'm very conflicted about attempts to increase soil OM. It takes a lot of time and resources. It's a good thing, but it works harder than it talks. What kind of soil you have. OM = 1.2% sounds...

    The peas look fantastic! How did you manage to keep them so weed free? I've never planted sun hemp. I've never really been too sure of its attraction potential. The deer around here are weird. ...

    I think you have a lot of hard work ahead of you! The grass is dead, but all those roots are a tangled mess below the soil surface. Some moisture will help, but you're still facing a hard test. ...

    I wish I could offer some hope, but the whole thing sounds wrong. I guess I'd start over -- in mid to late August.
    The only thing I am planting now is soybeans.

    Good! That'll work! Remember, if you let the weeds get tall, you're gonna need to cover a lot more leaf surface area. A quart of glyphosate and 25 gallons of water per acre is the ticket!
