Well for some reason I have almost no bulbs on any of the 3 spots that I put in the purple top turnips, and zero results from the ground hog forage radish.
The back plot ph is around 6 and gets some spotty sunlight, that one I can undersstand. For this field I tilled, packed with the 4 wheeler, spread seed and repacked with 4 wheeler.
Our pond plot ph is 6.8 gets all the sunlight it could ask for and we watered it a few times this year. No bubls, the greans are up and fine, but I can rip them free just walked around and bumping into plants. Here I tilled, packed and spread the seed immediately before a rain and it came up beautifully. No time to repack as it was starting to rain as I put in the seeds and wass already starting to make a mess just running through to seed.
Plot 3 is pure sun almost all day. Really just for messing around its 15 feet from a storage buidling and we dont hunt there, but the deer still use it, mostly at night.
There the same thing almost no roots or bulbs besides the spt in the corner that gets pure sunlight all day long there some bulbs are 4 inches acrossed. Again these are just a few seeds that really took off, most of it is just a big patch of lettuce basically. in the past we grew soybeans, clover, oats and some patchy corn here.
My dad planted that, just tilled and spread it on, no packing.
I guess my question is.... sunlight really that important?
I think I quite on the turnips.
