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 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
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.
