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 ! ! ! :smash::smash:

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

You got that right. It's all part of the experience.

Diesel? I am missing something here?

Planting

I planted mine 6 weeks ago every year has been great but opening wk of rifle still looks sad. maybe a 10 percent gemination. I hope some of the seed are dormate until the rain came. Will know next week land is just outside of High Falls.
