    Good morning all. With the drought that many of us had what's everyone's thoughts on their food plots. I planted mine the end of July and didn't have any rain until September. We just got .33 inches yesterday. My turnip plots are all about 2 inches tall. It looks like next week is supposed to be in the 70s. Will they make anything. I did end up adding Rye to these plots as I didn't know if the Turnips burnt up with the heat and lack of rain. Well from the looks of the plots this last weekend they didn't burn up just need mother nature to cooperate.

    The rain will help them for sure, they may not produce huge turnips but they will continue to grow. turnips seem to prefer the cooler sunny days in my opinion. The rye will take off as well and fill in the gaps after this rain.
    Good thing is no heat to burn off the moisture from the rain.
