Not planting that will come up or ripen/be attractive late (necessarily), but food plots that can be planted late.

I have a friend who I think is just dying to get on his tractor and putt-=putt around since he didn't get his fill of that this year with broken equipment and no money for seed.

So out of the blue he asked me about rape, and I told him I was agin it no matter how bored and frustrated he was, and he said he thought he could be fer it if it was the plant and for deer as opposed to the act of violence, and if it didn't cost too much and he could still put it in this year. We're coming up on frost time but it's not here yet.

Personally, I think this idea is nuts, but if there is something else he can stay busy with like a forage grass or a grain, I'm open to all suggestions. Naturally, he didn't do what I've told him over and over, which was late Sept/early Oct planting of oats and clover, which I have come to think of as the no-brainer of food plots for here and me.

''I think that if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.''

It may not be inevitable, but when this guy gets an idea in his head it's hard to talk him out of it, LOL.

Good old Bobby Knight.

Winter Rye is the most winter-hardy of all cereal grains, tolerating temperatures as low as -30F once it is well established and that's the trick. If you can get it in the ground soon to establish a good root structure it will usually winter just fine.

Rye can germinate and grow at temperatures as low as 33F, but it won’t grow very much when it’s that cold. High seeding rates should be used for late-sown winter covers like rye to assure a decent amount of ground cover, since individual plants will be small.
