Wish I could have read that article before this Srings planting, I planted an acre of Shotplot middle of May and now the turnip tops are dying. Will the turnip dry and rot away this year, or will they be available for the deer this Winter?
Already read that one.I passed on the radish and did try peas this year but without a cultipacker I don't know.
Good link Brad,QDM has some great input on food plots and habitat improvements.Stuff turns into a hobby.
Best time to plant the turnips is for a fall crop.Dutch will know better but the turnips themselves might last into winter.
I plant rape/turnips in late July and it goes like this,
Deer eat rape first,turnip tops second and the turnips into late winter.
I tried a spring rape/turnip plot in spring and it went to seed without the deer touching it.
