Dbltree, would this work for me next year? Plant berseem clover as early as possible in the spring. Followed by oats/field peas/brassicas the first of Aug? I was thinking by planting later, I wouldn't have to overseed anything and the oats would still be a mid-season draw. Our first frost arrives annually around the 2nd of November. Would this allow enough time for the peas to mature? If this would work, it'd save us a ton of $$. I'd put on some potash and phosphorus each spring and let the rye and clover do their thing. I'd seriously consider doing this year after year in one of our 1.5 acre plots.
