Are those brassicas gonna get hit hard now?

6 posts in this topic

I'm sure some of you guys have plots of brassicas out and with last nights good frost they should be getting hit, eh? Please keep me posted, I'm thinking of planting some next year.

I have heard lots of reports of them getting hit a month or two ago. I saw the same thing. No idea if the drought did something to them to make them attractive or what.

I would fully expect them to start getting hit hard very quickly. Last year I had no activity in a brassicas plot the week before rifle season, and by the time rifle season opened, it was 100% eaten flat. It was like a herd of goats went through it. I planted more this year, but ended up losing a lot to the drought too. frown.gif

I am wondering how hard my winter rye will get hit now with a couple of good killing frosts. The trail cam should tell the story this weekend.

Do Brassicas come back each year or do you have to replant them?

Replant every year.

I'm also really curious to see because I planted a 2 acre spot right below my house in mid-August. So far the deer have ignored it, they've been hitting the clover hard instead. Time will tell. In the past, when I've had smaller brassica spots, the deer had it eaten flat by Dec.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
