I planted turnips this year. Did what I feel was a Half-fast preperation job, compared to what I could have done, but I had little faith in their power to draw in deer. Howeer they worked great! I got decent growth and good draw of deer. There were deer on them every night, although earlier they just stoppe for a quick nibble, and later in the season they stayed and fed for a while. I had 1/2 acre, but it could have been whole acre in that spot, and now I'm shooting for a 2.5 acre spot at my house. I will do more prep this year, and plant a little earlier (Aug 5 last year) I'm thinking mid July, to get more growth before they really hammer them.
My question here is for those that have planted for many years. I have read that Turnips should not be planted more than 2 years in the same spot. Any way around that? I want to keep the success rolling.
