If you planted cool season crops, like the rest of us do, the heat isn't helping at all. Rain yes, heat no.

I felt they were a little thin too. Ok, school me on food plot seeding rates. So I planted buckbuster fall mix. Wheat, oats, rye, crimson clover, and three different kinds of clover. Bag says 50 lbs per acre. Those plots are about 0.25 acres each.

How much seed mix do you usually put out??

Should be plenty of seed may have just been covered to deep.

I always put out more seed than recommended. Wheat is cheap and oats aren't too bad, especially if you're not planting all that much acreage.

I doubt I covered it too much. Disced, disced in fert, broadcast seed, then drug it with gate of trailer.

I see the rape and clover coming up,maybe it is just slow. Or maybe the roots havenít found the fert yet. Better than I had last year.

How long does it take rape to get nice big leaves? This plot is only 2.5 weeks old. Am I expecting too much too soon?

Around November 15 or so, gonna hit it with ammonia nitrate

Uh, yes. Give it a month or two. They typically won't hit the rape until after the first frost when it sweetens up.

I would top seed with more rye if I were you.

We planted turnips and radishes in our plots. Within two weeks, ours had be leaves. We didn't get a rain on our plots until about the 2nd or 3rd week after planting.

I agree on top sowing some more seed. Good luck.

Deer hit rape and radish as soon as it starts getting good size leaves on them, at my place, but turnips are a different story. They need a frost to sweeten them up.

Rapeseed, Chicory and Clover all looking good, and growing well, as are the red ripper cowpeas. They have been growing taller, but I suspect that is nearing an end. I didn't expect them to really stay as long as they did, most reviews of them suggest in small plots they get mowed down. I'm pretty well covered up with acorns, I can't step anywhere without stepping on them, so that may have a lot to do with it.

With last night's rain the oats and winter peas should get a good start on germination, and hopefully we'll be green all the way past Christmas. I'll probably throw out another round of BFO in the thin spots before the next rain. Will add pictures next time.

I'm not sure that I have gained anything from planting the red-ripper cowpeas, other than they look cool growing in the food plot. Very few of my pictures are of deer actually eating in the cowpeas, they're on the clover/chicory. I think that attempting to grow them in the summer would only shade out most anything else I'd try to grow.
