    Ended up bailing on the corn for this year. Just flat didn’t have the time with the new house and barn restoration going. I planted the waterfowl mix from river refuge. The millet seems to be doing great but the smartweed is struggling. Mowed around the edge today and going to do some more work opening it up tomorrow. Any feedback is welcome, a farmer I’m not.

    That millet looks great!

    Be careful not to mow any of the millet or smartweed, as that would be considered baiting.

    Yeah, we didn’t plant the area that stays ice free the latest so just knocking junk down. I won’t actually hunt in here for well into the season.

    Look up Langdon Ducks, Newburg Oregon. Specializing in setting up marshes for attracting waterfowl. They have web site. Good luck. SKOL
