Turnips
« on: March 15, 2013, 09:38:12 AM »
All I can say is wow, I planted turnips late last Summer. They were grazed on a little thru the Fall hunting season but not alot. The last time I had seen them was mid January and all the tops were gone but the turnips them selves were thick. You could hardly walk thru them without rolling you ankle. I was there last night and there was nothing left. They had all been dug up and eaten. It is a great Winter food source.  See pic below.

Snort,
A couple of my friends around here plant them and they feed on them all winter. They are an awesome winter supplement for the white tail.

Plamted the Tall Tine Tubers last Sept and i was amazed at the usage. As soon as it got cold they left my Rye and wheat for good. I'm disking them up this weekend to plant my spring stuff.
