Depending on what you want to do with the plot. Is it just for food, an attractant, or a hunt plot? A good piece of advice that I have is to plant it late if it is used for either of the latter....say late July - Mid August. The thought behind that is once hunting season rolls around all plants in the woods are grown up just like your plot if you plant it early. If you plant it late it is going to be tender greens in mid-September until freeze. I have planted High Rack, Biologic, and have mixed my own with rye and rape (canola) which has worked well. It really depends on your use of the plot although.

      Fished the lake Sunday, got on the lake using the resorts access. Very nice folks at the resort, gave us tips where to fish a what to use. 4 of us fished from noon to 4pm. 2 17" rainbows caught in 12fow 2' under the ice. 4 lakers caught in 40fow 2' off the bottom, 2 10" went back into the lake to grow up. Kept 1 20" and 1 16". light winds, partly sunny and 45 degrees; it was an awesome day to be out on the ice.
