When I planted brassicas , sugar beet family, there wasn't anything left by bow season except the root. The deer pawed through frozen ground to get them in the winter. I'm going to blend some turnip seeds in when I plant this month to whatever else I throw in.

awesome looking plots delbert I am assuming you don't use plot mix but buy seeds from a farm & feed store?
I am thinking of ordering seeds next year online looks cheaper then buying plot mixes

Thanks guys
I did buy the seeds at a seed plant , the beens are a round up ready grazing been last year they got 6ft tall, they are up to my belly buton so far this year.

My clover is the whitetail clover mix

I planted a mix last week ,winter bulbs & sugar beets but when i read the bag its only 4% beets

So i ordered 5lb of sugar beets off ebay good for a 1/2 acre, i will mix in some soybeens to give the deer some tenders to eat till frost

The new ground i have worked up will be a mixed blend its a 1/3rd of a acre

So i went ahead and planted them all
This first pic is the box stand plot i made for my wife that she doest use like she should
On the new ground i worked up last week i planted a bio logic outfitter mix
