Planting Summer Food and Feed Crops

We have been trying to get growing on our new homestead, but are fighting a battle with herbivores and weeds. What can we still plant in southern Missouri in July to have some supplies and livestock feed this winter? (We use no machinery and grow organic.)


Any ideas for cheap, easy fencing?

Hardiness Zone: 6a

You can plant summer rye or wheat & some field peas to eat & freeze,call your county extension office for more free info,we used electric fencing to keep out animals,tie something(cloth strips) on it so they can see there's a fence there,spray weeds with vinegar,good luck.
