I am buying a small property and getting procession on December 1. Mostly sandy east Texas soil. Is there anything that I can plant that will help me out the last part of the season?

buy a winter plot mix from your local seed store (oats/turnips/radishes/wheat/rye/winter-peas) and plant/throw best you can....

Justin seed carries this: http://justinseed.com/seeds/mixes/wildlife-and-food-plots/deer-mixes/fall-deer-mix-with-clover

most of this will come up just fine in mild texas winter weather, and the deer really gobble up the young shoots . . ..

Winter wheat, should be able to get a some 50 lb. bags from the feed store and it'll come up quick. They'll start munchin' on it as soon as there is green sticking out of the ground.

I would see if the current owner would mind you putting it down now. Poston Seed in Terrell can hook you up. should start coming up in 1-2 weeks depending on rain amounts.

Good luck!

Thanks to all for your information. I'm going to give it a try and will let you know "what comes up."

My food plot came up early and got eaten up by army worms. I just replanted oats yesterday and will plant wheat tomorrow. Fingers crossed that we get some moisture in the near future.

Anyone know which has the lowest germination temp? Oats or wheat? I Know wheat will stand lower temperature once it is up. I plan to try and plant something next week just not sure what. Turnips don't do well at all in sulphur river bottoms.

Oats between 34-36 degrees. could not find anything on wheat.

The reason for doing this is it has a verity of things that will come up at different times over the season.

Rye works well also. Problem is lack of rain.
