Default Trophy Radishes

Checked my food plot yesterday and the trophy radishes are coming up nicely. They are between2" and 4 " high and coming in pretty thick. I planed them about two weeks ago. Is the good height for that amount of time? They are nice and green as well.

Great, glad you got good germination and emergence. I would think that is pretty normal growth.

Good luck! Keep us posted.

I planted mine around the same time and I checked on them today. They are around 4" high. My food plot is in NE Ga.

Pasinthrough yours look to be a right on cue. The ones we planted last year had trouble with all the flooding rain but did make a come back towards the later part of the season. The really interesting thing is that last year when the deer ate the tops off they actually grew back better and a little more aggressive.

I shot this fella last weekend about 110 yards off this very plot. He was following a very tiny 60 pound doe around. If it keeps the does fed, they will keep the bucks interested and keep them around!

Efliii,

That plot is an old load deck for the pines. Its had a couple of burned piles on it in the past, so the dirt is rich. It gets some shade, and we have been having heavy dew the past couple of weeks. I think that's the only reason they look as good as they do.

COME ON RAIN ! ! !

Those look very good condsidering the lack of rain that we've had. Here's a picture of one of our radish plots from last December. This 3/4 acre plot had beed heavily grazed for a good 2 months and they were still going strong.

Thanks pal,

I like to at least think all the hours planting and spraying and diesel and fertilizer and so on....helps on occasion. I guess I could just hunt one year, but what in the world would I do in the off season?

I might be , but I'm a firm believer in if you plant it, they will come!

Mine are getting killed over the last two weeks! I already have them up over my knee and the roots are 2 inches in diameter. I will be down this weekend and try to post a few pics.

My Uncle dug up 1 TR plant last season at a friends house. He took it home and planted it with a wire cage around it, let it flower/seed out and when the seeds were dry he kept them and planted them this yr. He planted a 50x50 patch mid september and that area is covered with TR that are 10-12" above the ground. Just food for thought.

Default 90 day update

Well, it's been 3 months and I was blessed with two days of rains over the first month, which is why I think they turned out like they have. The deer are hitting all of my plots hard right now. I still have white oak acorns on the ground, but all my radishes and mustard plots show signs of heavy browsing. I think I'm going to have more plots like these come next year. Good luck to everyone!

I planted a corner of a pasture and my radishes and arkansas oats and purple top turnips are outstanding, but there is very little activity on the plot. The corner measures right at two acres. I put out a camera and have six different deer on camera, which has corn in front of the camera. I only put out about 1 gallon out in front of the feeder every 4 days. The deer eat the corn and leave my plot alone. All photos are night time photos and no, I am not hunting over this plot...........yet.

What gives? My plots looks equal or better than the best photos on this thread. I am just outside of Dublin Ga and the plot is on a field that borders a very large swamp / creek. My closest neighbor had a food plot earlier but wasn't satisfied with it so he plowed it under to restart it. Mine is ripe and has little activity. I havent seen any browse damage on any of my plants. Some are almost knee high.

Let me clarify. I put out a Coffee container that might be gallon sized of corn maybe every 4 days in front of the camera. If I didn't do that , I wouldn't have any pictures. Most of the pictures are of 4 coons and 2 possums enjoying the corn.

The corn, if anything should get them to the plot, and then they should jump into the 2 acre salad bowl and have at it. Not the case so far. I dont put out that much corn to keep the deer full enough not to want to eat something else.
