Got the plot in yesterday. Need to take pics. Last week I mowed, thatched, and sprayed it. Yesterday it was disc, thatch, fertilize, disc, seed, disc lightly, then roll it. Then I picked a few small sections to seed on top of the plot to see if it makes a difference. It sure as hell looks good though.

The DNR specialist for this area recommends early June for the turnips. Plus, my co-owner brother has to have his say.... :roll:

Food plot looks.....terrible. Coverage is spotty as hell. Hard rain forced the seed to the top. Damn cowbirds are eating up the seed on the top. Good excuse to reseed though. Embarrassed to take pics after the luscious plot I grew last YEAR :oops:

really with turnips.........you should almost just broadcast..............something's not working right here. if you re-seed........you can mix the turnip seed with sand and walk it in with a hand seeder. do it right before a good rain or just let what you have up grow a little including free lance weeds/ grass. then re-seed on top and then cut the growth off over top of the re-seed. that should nix the birds long enough to get the patch a start. my ol' man used just put a bag of sand/turnipseed mix on the ol tractor fender and just disck the field............of course he could raise just about any thing even on a rock.............

i let my two plots from last year go to seed.............i will bush hog them down in july and i should get at least one more year out of them.............may over seed in late september with some winter oats by hand.
