Last fall I seeded foodplots with turnips and clover. Checked out food plots yesterday - the clover is coming up very well in patches ( I think my seed distribution was pretty poor), but the turnips are going nuts. Should I mow the turnips to benefit the clover, or should I leave the turnips? They didn't seem very interested in the turnips until sometime after season last year. I'm thinking that a good clover stand will be better than essentially volunteer turnips. What do you think?

Ya, except the turnips are really tall, and seem to be flowering. At first, I thought it was weeds. But I looked closer, and it had turnip-like leaves, and was growing a turnip like tuber or root underneath. I think I'll mow it.

We need more rain though.
