Default Beets & Greens

I tried the Beets & Greens on my food plot at the house this year. So far this was the best bait plot I have put in.

The plants got to 8 - 12" then the lawn mowers (12 - 16 deer every evening) are trying there best to kill them

As you can see in the pics there is not much left but they continue to hit this field every evening.

I do have a feeder on the other side of the property, in the last 3 weeks I'm going thru 200lbs of corn a week dang pigs

Come late December - January I will start thinning out some of the doe - till then I will let the decoys live

We had a very dry summer, I waited to plant till rain was forecasted, but as usual the weatherman got it wrong It did not rain for another week. I was worried the birds would get fat eating all my seed so I was happy when it started to grow.
