With the thread going on clover right now, it has brought up an issue I am facing. I have some bees on a field that the farmer doesn't mow for hay untill late about second cutting time around here. I want to increase the quality of forage in the field, (now mainly thistle and milkweed) by adding some alfalfa to it. He doesn't mind, but doesn't want the sod disturbed. can I just broadcast seed some of it, and if so when should I do it?
