my question is why bother with corn or soybeans. I assume that your plots are strictly for harvesting and not nutritional value, so why not plant fall maturing plants like brassicas. The deer will not attack them till first frost when the sugar content raises in the leaves, but they are high in protien too so the remaining deer do get some early fall food needs. I would think corn and soybeens need a whole lot more work to get a good crop?????
