Hello, I first wanted to introduce myself. My name is Bill and live in BH county, I don't own any land but have a wonderful landowner who lets me play in the dirt a little. Found out playing in the dirt is in my DNA from Germany lol and I enjoy it. I only have a couple a tiny plots, one little less then 1/8th A. and one little over 1/8th A. but might make it into a 1/4 A this year. Last year I picked up seed from Welters and before they closed I bought seed from Cedar River mill in Gilbertville. Just was curious if anyone has anywhere they buy seed from more local around Black Hawk county? Looking to pick up some fertilizer, Winter Rye and maybe Jerry Oats for this fall. The Clover I have no problem buying from Welters and just have it shipped. I went back through 9 years of post on here, lots of good info you guys have shared so thank you. I am only small time with sweat and hand tools but man I enjoy it . Also for my landowner who was amazed with the size of the Purple Top Turnips I had last year, can I plant a few PTTs in May and harvest them in July for my landowner as a gift or would they be to bitter? Was thinking that then I could plant the Rye in fall in same plot. Well I appreciate your help and happy habitat season.
