● Plant seeds that grow with minimal moisture: chicory, alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil, small burnet, wheat, red clover, lablab, and Eagle soybeans. Buy seed mixes that have moisture-holding coatings, like Whitetail Institute's RainBond. Find spots such as northeast-facing slopes where plants receive maximum morning and midday sun when it's cool, and the least amount of hot late-afternoon sun. Locate plots adjacent to tall trees bordering the south and west. They'll block the harshest late-day sun.
