We planted a bunch of mixed food plot seeds that we were gifted with. Some bags had the labels missing. We just planted to see what might do well in a test plot area. Here are some we had trouble identifying. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!





This one might be brassica?

Top one looks like some sort of Pea or a legume? 2nd one definitely looks like a brassica, a red russian kale to be exact. And that third picture looks an awful lot like a parsnip.. Those would be my guesses. As a gardener ha. I'm not sure you'd find those exact seeds in a wildlife mix, but I don't see why you wouldnt.

Leafs on Turnips are similar to a parsnip.. I reckon you'd likely find turnips in a game mix opposed to parsnips... So either of those!

These are fighting for space and moisture seeing that yellowing

Do you use a drill?

Might be able to find them on here or Google the company that bagged it to see what type of mixes they have.

We just broadcast these and roll-packed them. Some of the seeds were from a long ways back, so we just kind of tested them to see if any would grow. We had tons of rain right after we planted them and then nothing. Heard we might have received some rain in that area last night, so hopefully that helps them a bit.

Gothca hard to control it with I broadcaster I have the same thing happen with mine in spring planting peas and whatnot. Looks good though looks like you got the dirt worked well

This looks similar to Daikon Radish. The first one is a clover or alfalfa I think just by the leaf growth.

I think that first one is Black Medic.

I don't believe any of those are chicory. All of the chicory I planted had upright standing smooth edge oval leaves in the early growth stage. Here's a picture of the chicory that was left on a clover/chicory plot after the deer ate all of the chicory not protected by the exclusion cage.
