I think it's too soon to put seed down for a Fall food plot Big Deeszly. You should be thinking mid-September to mid-November, timing the planting to just before a good rain.
The best thing you can do for yourself in July and August is to hit the area with Glyphosate. If you're disking the area, hit it with Gly, disk it two or three weeks later, then hit it with Gly again a few weeks after disking.
Seed is available at many rural Feed & Seed stores. Where is your hunting area located? How big is the plot (length and width)? How badly shaded?
For most secluded small plots in the woods the best mix is usually Crimson clover, some form of white clover (Ladino, Alsyke, etc.) and rye grass. If you have decent sunlight on the plot for a few hours in the day, use wheat instead of rye grass.
