and don't waste your money on that apple corn crap that's mark up to like $12 for 40 lbs. Go buy a bushel at your local feed store for around $8. They'll find it just the same, maybe not as fast, but they'll find it. I'm a big nut for trophy rock... actually, before we left for the hospital (new baby!) I put one out. I can't wait to go check the cam this weekend sometime. I also plant about 2-3 food plots that are about 1/2 an acre of turnips. I plant them in late August. get you two 5 gal buckets and fill one up with loose dry dirt. as you shovel the dirt into the bucket, dump a little seed of turnips in with every scoop. Once done, pour the full bucket into the empty bucket and back and forth again about 10 times. This'll help get the seed separated and mixed into the dirt. Then take the dirt (if plot is small like mine) and hand throw it on freshly tilled land. I don't even rake it in, they don't have to be planted that deep. Now, last year was an extremely wet year for MO, so they didn't turn out great, but I'm hoping for a MUCH better crop this year.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
