    Everybody has a limit on two things - time and money. I'll go at this without suggesting you spend a lot of money, and doing something where you have a decent chance of success. Remember, I'm still...

    A tall late maturing corn is good. The deer and other critters will eat the corn, but I've now found the stalks very palatable. Or, look for Sudex, a sorghum - sundan grass hybred.

    I know this is a small food plot. Most anything goes. But, not to put too fine a point on it, don't plant turnips and clover in the same field. Assuming your planting densities are correct, the...

    It's not in the seed bag. Foxtail, like other weeds, is everywhere. Disturb the soil and you will find weeds you didn't know even existed.

    I don't think the OM is going to limit your selection of forages....too much. It's a food plot, not an occupation! Rye (the small grain and not ryegrass) is the first forage that comes to mind. ...

    I wish I could offer some hope, but the whole thing sounds wrong. I guess I'd start over -- in mid to late August.

    Good! That'll work! Remember, if you let the weeds get tall, you're gonna need to cover a lot more leaf surface area. A quart of glyphosate and 25 gallons of water per acre is the ticket!
