Figures

Well, it figures as soon as the seed for my fall plot comes in it would finally stop raining. I was planning on getting it in this weekend a little earlier than usual but not much rain in the forecast so I think I’ll hold off. My luck we will have a drought now...

I’ve got some clover seed to overseed my existing clover “patch”. The remainder of the areas will be seeded with dwarf Essex rape.

I've had good success planting my brassica around the last weekend of July if there is good soil moisture or a good chance of rain in the forecast. If you put them in too early they will mature too early in the season and lose their attractiveness

Still plenty of time. The ground is starting to get pretty dry.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Well I threw it down over the weekend. I saw they forecasted a good chance of storms/rain for most of the week, so I figured may as well go for it. Time will tell...I’ll update with some pics in a few weeks.

I agree with Ron, I would wait to early sept. for turnips and rape. Also remember our seasons are not like they used to be. Sept. and Oct. stays warmer then ever. And speaking as a Landscaper don't trust the weather forecast. You think its tough with this wet year for food plots, try and make your bread and butter in a year like this.

I had great success with turnips when I planted mid August.

I plant turnips 60-90 days before the first frost. Anytime between July 15 and Aug 15. I saw the forecast and got my turnips planted last weekend.
