I planted 1/2 acre total of all purple top turnips about 2.5 weeks ago.
They are for deer.
Bad news this year, due to record amounts of rain, I could not get my cub out there at all on my 40 acre lowland meadow. Where the food plots are in back it's dry, but there is bout 80 feet all across the front of my land up by the road where it has been 2 feet deep with mud all spring and summer.
SO...I took the 6 wheel ARGO out there a few weeks ago, mowed and raked by hand (not fun), then dragged with a spike tooth drag I just picked up.
I re-worked the plots I had in last year. Put on some 10-0-10 fertilizer, and the turnips are coming up, along with some clover and rye grass again from last year.
