Forage Seed Mix Available at River's Edge, Oquossoc

We have been checking our first and second season's  deer plot crops just this week.  I am pleased to announce that we have seen many grouse coveys foraging and deer browsing.There are also browsing signs of moose and beer too.  The clover aroma is overwhelming and a foot high. Song birds are busy eating the bees and insects.   This seed mix really works,  and of course the wood ash helps a little too!

The Rangeley Standard Seed Mix is still available at River's Edge Sports in Oquossoc,  864-5582.  A 12 lb. bag will cover 1/8 acre and is $40.  Always make sure that your soil has a ph of 6.0.   Use lime or wood ash to build up your soil to the proper sweetness.  Composed of Winter rye, buck forage oats, buckwheat, forage turnips; and  white dutch- medium red- and alsike clover. 

We also introduced a new Low Ph Seed Mix,  which should grow in soils 5.0-5.5.  It is experimental.  Sorry we are sold out,  but you can order this seed mix through Easter Sales, Pownal 688-4991.  A 12 lb. bag cost 65$ and covers an acre.  Composed of Chicory, cowpeas, annual winter rye, buckwheat ,  crimson clover, Durana white- and Alsike Clover.
