The first year for our plots (3) we went with rye, oat, clover and chicory. Did a ring around the plots, about 50' wide each, of clover then Chicory, Rye and oats over the "middle".
We only tilled the outer ring... just low cut the center and over-seeded with the chicory, rye and oats.
Now we get plenty of hay off the "big" plot (2.6 acres).
2nd year we broadcast more clover over the outer ring and tried some turnips. 40'x200' "strip" in the big plot, all over the small plots.
Didn't take in the big plot, we blame less than ideal drainage there... so it got more clover and rye.
The two smaller plots, (about 1/3 acre each) had less success with the clover returning the following year, but took quite well to the rye and chicory, and has been gang-buster on the turnips each year that we remember to throw some out.
We'll mainly hunt the big plot in October and rifle, and lightly on the small plots.
We save "serious" use of the small plots for flintlock, as the deer will kick up the turnips and chow down after first deep hard freeze.
